Vítt stóð ógn af ýti
(íslenzkum her vísi)
orms vallar (bauð allan
aldr goðs lǫgum halda).
Svá lét rœtr, hinns rítar
rjóðendr of vann, góðar,
reyrs, und ráði vôru
réttdœmr konungr settar.

Ógn stóð vítt af {ýti {vallar orms}}; vísi bauð íslenzkum her halda lǫgum goðs allan aldr. Svá lét réttdœmr konungr, hinns of vann {rjóðendr {reyrs rítar}}, góðar rœtr settar und ráði vôru.

Dread emanated far and wide from {the impeller {of the plain of the serpent}} [GOLD > GENEROUS MAN]; the leader ordered the Icelandic people to keep the laws of God for all time. Thus the righteous king, the one who conquered {reddeners {of the reed of the shield}} [SWORD > WARRIORS], let good roots be set under our condition.
