Halda hlífðar aldri
hljótendr á hlyn spjóta;
verðk af veigarskorðum
vaka ár af því fári.
Enn munu örva sennu
ýtendr of mik flýta
orð, at eigi verðak
altryggr, ef nú gyggvir.

{Hljótendr hlífðar} halda aldri á {hlyn spjóta}; verðk vaka ár af því fári af {veigarskorðum}. {Ýtendr {sennu örva}} munu enn flýta orð of mik, at verðak eigi altryggr, ef nú gyggvir.

{The possessors of the shield} [WARRIORS] will never hinder {the maple of spears} [WARRIOR]; I have to lie awake early on account of that pain caused by {the props of drink} [WOMEN]. {The launchers {of the quarrel of arrows}} [BATTLE > WARRIORS] will nonetheless be quick with words about me, such that I should not be completely safe, if I now quail.
