Hvarf er þeim, er þurfa,
þingnárungum, váru,
branda rjóðr í bráðar
brynflagð*a nauðsynjar.
Fekk strandloga stökkvir
stígverjanda hverjum
fráns af fjárhlut sínum
fullar hendr, meðan endiz.

{Rjóðr branda} er hvarf {þeim {{brynflagð*a} þing}nárungum}, er váru þurfa, í bráðar nauðsynjar. {Stökkvir {strandloga}} fekk {hverjum {fráns stíg}verjanda} hendr fullar af fjárhlut sínum, meðan endiz.

{The reddener of swords} [WARRIOR] is a support {for those beings {of the assembly {of the trolls of the mailcoat}}} [(lit. ‘assembly-beings of the mailcoat-trolls’) AXES > BATTLE > WARRIORS] who were poor, in cases of sudden need. {The flinger {of shore-flame}} [GOLD > GENEROUS MAN] gave {every defender {of the path of the snake}} [(lit. ‘snake’s path-defender’) GOLD > MAN] hands full of his wealth, while it lasted.
