Braut varð hjǫrtr frá hreyti
— heim fór at þat — seima;
Krist bað frægr við freistni
fultings boði hringa.
Sagði drengr, þaus dugðu,
(dolglinns*) konu sinni
(rǫskr gat hug við háska)
heit goðssonar (beitir).

Hjǫrtr varð braut frá {hreyti seima}; fór heim at þat; {frægr boði hringa} bað Krist fultings við freistni. Drengr sagði konu sinni heit {goðssonar}, þaus dugðu; {rǫskr beitir {dolglinns*}} gat hug við háska.

The hart went away from {the flinger of gold} [GENEROUS MAN]; he went home after that; {the famous offerer of rings} [GENEROUS MAN] asked Christ for help in the face of his trial. The man told his wife the promises {of God’s son} [= Christ], which were powerful; {the brave handler {of the battle-serpent}} [SWORD > WARRIOR] received courage against danger.
