Unni ærlig kvinna
auðgætanda mætum
sætt af sinni dóttur;
syndlaust var það yndi.
Enn fyrir ilsku manna
upp smíðaðiz síðan
— angr vann aumlig tunga —
orð á silkiskorðu.

Ærlig kvinna unni {mætum auðgætanda} sætt af dóttur sinni; það yndi var syndlaust. Enn fyrir ilsku manna smíðaðiz síðan upp orð á {silkiskorðu}; aumlig tunga vann angr.

The honest woman loved {the splendid wealth-guardian} [MAN] sweetly because of her daughter; that pleasure was sinless. Yet because of the wickedness of men a rumour was then fabricated about {the silk-prop} [WOMAN]; a wretched tongue caused grief.
