Þengill lætr hǫpp hrest;
honum fylgir dáð mest;
vísi gefr vel flest
verbál ólest.
Húfar brutu haf ljótt;
heim létk jǫfur sótt;
yngva lofar ǫll drótt;
jarlsk frama gnótt.

Þengill lætr hǫpp hrest; mest dáð fylgir honum; vísi gefr {vel flest verbál} ólest. Húfar brutu ljótt haf; létk jǫfur sótt heim; ǫll drótt lofar yngva; sák gnótt frama jarls.

The lord makes successes flourish; the greatest achievement accompanies him; the leader gives {nearly every sea-pyre} [PIECE OF GOLD] undamaged. Hulls broke the hideous ocean; I visited the prince at his home; the entire court praises the ruler; I saw the abundance of the jarl’s glory.
