Færðum seggi         frá svikaráðum
ok trégoðum         tynda ek þeira.
Barða ek Bjálka         í borghliði
eikikylfu,         áðr hann önd um lét.

Færðum seggi frá svikaráðum ok ek tynda trégoðum þeira. Ek barða Bjálka eikikylfu í borghliði, áðr hann um lét önd.

We [I] turned men away from a deceitful state of life and I destroyed their wooden gods. I hit Bjálki with an oaken club in the fortress gateway before he gave up the ghost.
