Nefndr vas, ungr sás efndi,
ýta vǫrðr, í Gǫrðum,
œski-Baldr, við aldir,
Ôleifr fyr mér, stála.
Eldstøkkvir sásk ekki
(ǫll hugði vel snjǫllum)
hafs nema hilmi jǫfra
(heimsbyggð syni Tryggva).

{Œski-Baldr stála}, {vǫrðr ýta}, sás ungr efndi við aldir í Gǫrðum, vas nefndr Ôleifr fyr mér. {{Hafs eld}støkkvir} sásk ekki nema {hilmi jǫfra}; ǫll heimsbyggð hugði vel {snjǫllum syni Tryggva}.

{The wishing Baldr of steel weapons} [WARRIOR], {guardian of men} [RULER], who, [when] young, performed [deeds] against men in Russia, was named to me [as] Óláfr. {The dispenser {of the fire of the sea}} [(lit. ‘fire-dispenser of the sea’) GOLD > GENEROUS MAN] feared nothing except {the ruler of princes} [= God]; all the peopled world thought well {of the valiant son of Tryggvi} [= Óláfr].
