Veitk hrings hraða
í hǫll laða
— gótts hús Hlaða —
hirð ǫlsaða.
Drekkr gramr glaða,
en at gjǫf vaða
vitar valstaða,
vandbaugskaða.

Veitk {hraða hrings} laða ǫlsaða hirð í hǫll; hús Hlaða [e]s gótt. Gramr drekkr {{vandbaug}skaða} glaða, en {vitar {valstaða}} vaða at gjǫf.

I know that {the hastener of the ring} [GENEROUS MAN] invites the ale-sated retinue into the hall; the house of Lade is good. The ruler makes {damagers {of the wand of the shield-boss}} [(lit. ‘wand-shield-boss-damagers’) SWORD > WARRIORS] merry with drink, and {beacons {of falcon-perches}} [ARMS > GOLD] advance as a gift.
