Annat var, þá er inni.
Ormr at Hildar stormi
gekk enn gráðgum blakki
Geitis sylg at veita.
Rekk at rómu dökkri
raunmargan gaf vargi
seggr ok sárt nam höggva
svinnr at Ífu minni.

Annat var, þá er inni. Ormr gekk enn at {stormi Hildar} at veita {gráðgum blakki Geitis} sylg. Svinnr seggr gaf vargi raunmargan rekk at dökkri rómu ok nam höggva sárt at minni Ífu.

It used to be different, when inside. Ormr went again to {the storm of Hildr <valkyrie>} [BATTLE] to give a drink {to the greedy horse of Geitir <giant>} [WOLF]. The swift warrior gave very many a man to the wolf in dark battle and dealt hard blows at the mouth of the Ífa.
