Hús brutu heip*tar fúsir
— hófsk freistni svá — þjófar;
út bôru þeir aura
ǫldurmanns ór ranni.
Ǫll réð flærðar fellir
fétjón, þaus beið ljóna
— snauðr varð* ôrr at auði
unnblakks — goði þakka.

Þjófar fúsir heip*tar brutu hús; svá hófsk freistni; þeir bôru aura út ór ǫldurmanns ranni. {Fellir ljóna flærðar} réð þakka goði ǫll fétjón, þaus beið; {ôrr {unnblakks}} varð* snauðr at auði.

Thieves eager for harm broke into the house; thus the trial began; they carried valuables out of the nobleman’s house. {The destroyer of men’s falsehood} [HOLY MAN] gave thanks to God for all the losses which he suffered; {the messenger {of the wave-horse}} [SHIP > SEAFARER] became bereft of wealth.
