Sik bað stríða stǫðvir
stirðs, es at kom firði,
hyrlund heiðni kenndan
herleiks of sæ ferja.
Veittit fremðar flýti

fetrjóðr Fenris jóða
farning inn bǫlgjarni,

{Stǫðvir stríða}, es kom at firði, bað {{{stirðs herleiks} hyr}lund}, kenndan heiðni, ferja sik of sæ. {Inn bǫlgjarni fetrjóðr {jóða Fenris}} veittit aldyggva farning {flugstyggum flýti fremðar},
