Sté fyrir húf hesti
hrófs inn þrekmesti
gœðir gunnskára;
gladdisk naðr sára.
Niðr kom bens bára;
Búi nam sér hvára
— ferð hykk friðar misstu —
frœkn í hǫnd kistu.

{Inn þrekmesti gœðir {gunnskára}} sté fyrir húf {hesti hrófs}; {naðr sára} gladdisk. {Bára bens} kom niðr; frœkn Búi nam kistu í hvára hǫnd sér; hykk ferð misstu friðar.

{The most powerful endower {of battle-gulls}} [RAVENS/EAGLES > WARRIOR] leapt from the hull {of the horse of the boat-shed} [SHIP]; {the snake of wounds} [SWORD] was gladdened. {The wave of the wound} [BLOOD] poured down; the valiant Búi took a chest in each of his hands; I think men missed out on peace.
