Öld af fjandskap fyldiz
fljótt, er sýndi dróttinn
vægð, og virðar sögðu
villir sín á milli:
‘Eldsneyti hafa ýtar
oflítið gjört rítar,
því hefir minst in mjóva
mengrund af kvöl brunnið.’

Öld fyldiz fljótt af fjandskap, er dróttinn sýndi vægð, og villir virðar sögðu á milli sín: ‘{Ýtar rítar} hafa gjört oflítið eldsneyti, því hefir {in mjóva mengrund} brunnið minst af kvöl.’

People were quickly filled with animosity when the Lord showed mercy, and erring men said among themselves: ‘{The impellers of the shield} [WARRIORS] have prepared too little firewood, therefore {the slender necklace-ground} [WOMAN] has burned the least with torment.’
