Þann, er af mínum munni
margr til andar bjargar
sér megi randa rýrir
röðuls framkvæmdan öðlaz.
S… látattu sveitir,
siðskjótr, af því hljóta
gumna kind at grandi,
guð minn, laga þinna.

Þann er {margr rýrir {randa röðuls}} megi öðlaz sér til andar bjargar framkvæmdan af mínum munni. Minn guð, siðskjótr, látattu sveitir hljóta af því s… þinna laga, at grandi kind gumna.

Such [fruit] that {many a destroyer {of shields’ sun}} [SWORDS > WARRIOR] might gain benefit from for his soul’s salvation [produced] from my mouth. My God, quick to promote virtue, let not men suffer from it [a perversion?] of your laws, to the injury of the race of men.
