Þat var fyrir löngu,         er í leið megir
Heklings fóru         hlumtungum
fram um salta         slóð birtinga;
þá varð ek þessa         þorps ráðandi.

Þat var fyrir löngu, er megir Heklings fóru í leið {hlumtungum} fram um {salta slóð birtinga}; þá varð ek ráðandi þessa þorps.

It was long ago when the sons of Heklingr went on their way {with oar-handle tongues} [OAR BLADES] over {the salt track of sea-trout} [SEA]; then I became the ruler of this habitation.
