Ǫll vas hrædd við hollan
hrafni elgbjóð stafna
(vítt bauð ǫðlingr ýtum)
óþjóð (siðu góða).
Þann vissu gram gumnar,
grímu fárs þeirs vôru
sannmiðjungar, svinna
sér leiðastan, heiðnir.

Ǫll óþjóð vas hrædd við {{stafna elg}bjóð}, hollan hrafni; ǫðlingr bauð ýtum góða siðu vítt. Gumnar, þeirs vôru {heiðnir sannmiðjungar {fárs grímu}}, vissu þann svinna gram leiðastan sér.

The whole wicked tribe was afraid of {the offerer {of the elk of stems}} [(lit. ‘elk-offerer of stems’) SHIP > SEAFARER], gracious to the raven; the ruler proclaimed a good faith to people widely. Men who were {heathen true giants {of the harm of the helmet}} [SWORD > WARRIORS] knew that clever prince [to be] most hateful to them.
