Hreinbyggvir lét hǫggva
hrófs af mǫrgum þjófi,
hinns of hvert ráð kunni,
hendr eða fœtr, at bœta.
Horvetna lét hjǫrva
hríðeflǫndum víða
austr, þeims unnu lǫstu,
ósið jǫfurr kviðjat.

{{Hrófs hrein}byggvir}, hinns kunni at bœta of hvert ráð, lét hendr eða fœtr hǫggva af mǫrgum þjófi. Horvetna austr lét jǫfurr kviðjat ósið víða {{hjǫrva hríð}eflǫndum}, þeims unnu lǫstu.
