þás auðskiptis eptir
almilds konu dvalði
— væn leizk hodd-Gefn hônum —
hjǫrlundr á skæ sunda.
Hreins varð heggr við sína
hraustr, þás gekk af flausti,
auðar eiginbrúði
óviljandi at skiljask.

þás {hjǫrlundr} dvalði konu {almilds auðskiptis} eptir á {skæ sunda}; {hodd-Gefn} leizk hônum væn. {Hraustr heggr hreins auðar} varð óviljandi at skiljask við eiginbrúði sína, þás gekk af flausti.

when {the sword-tree} [WARRIOR] kept the wife {of the most generous wealth-distributor} [GENEROUS MAN] back on {the horse of channels} [SHIP]; {the hoard-Gefn <= Freyja>} [WOMAN] looked beautiful to him. {The brave tree of shining wealth} [MAN] had to part with his wife against his will, when he left the ship.
