unz hvardyggvan hugga
happmildr konungr vildi
láðhofs lyp*ti-Móða
leggjar farms í harmi,
þás við huggun hôva
herstefni* réð efna
siðbjóðr snotra lýða
sín heit friðar veitir.

unz {happmildr konungr {láðhofs}} vildi hugga {lyp*ti-Móða {farms leggjar}}, hvardyggvan, í harmi, þás {siðbjóðr snotra lýða}, {veitir friðar}, réð efna heit sín {herstefni*} við hôva huggun.

until {the mercy-granting king {of the earth-temple}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God] wished to comfort {the bearing-Móði <god> {of the cargo of the arm}} [GOLD > MAN], honourable in everything, in his sorrow, when {the faith-bringer to wise men} [= Christ], {the giver of peace} [= Christ], fulfilled his promise {to the army-ruler} [WARRIOR] with supreme consolation.
