Hugðu brœðr at beiði
brandéls meginvandla,
þóttusk mildi tan
menn Plácitus kenna,
unz hyr-Þróttar hittu
hjaldrserks
... hǫfðu
hoddsendi rétt kenndan.

 

The brothers considered carefully {the demander {of the sword-storm}} — [BATTLE > WARRIOR] the men thought they recognised Plácitus, renowned for generosity [or piety] —, until {the Þróttar {of the fire {of the war-shirt}}} [(lit. ‘the fire-Þróttar of the war shirt’) MAIL-SHIRT > SWORD > WARRIORS] met they had correctly recognised {the gold-distributor}. [GENEROUS MAN]
