Hrafngreddir stóð hoddum
hættastr*, jafnt sem ætti,
linns í lypting sinni
látrkennir, fjǫr þrenni.
Yggs þykkjumk ek ekki
ógnblíðustum síðan
hjaldrs frá horskum gildi
hafa sannfregit annat.

{Hrafngreddir}, hættastr* hoddum, {{linns látr}kennir}, stóð í lypting sinni, jafnt sem ætti þrenni fjǫr. Ek þykkjumk ekki hafa sannfregit annat síðan frá {horskum, ógnblíðustum gildi {hjaldrs Yggs}}.

{The raven-feeder} [WARRIOR], most hazardous to hoards, {master {of the serpent’s lair}} [(lit. ‘lair-master of the serpent’) GOLD > GENEROUS MAN], stood on his after-deck, just as if he had three lives. I seem not to have truly heard anything else since about {the sage, most battle-delighting dispenser {of the uproar of Yggr <= Óðinn>}} [BATTLE > WARRIOR].
