Ok bæði hjú blíðan
byskups fund — at mundum
þeim hykk þrifn kómu —
þá nótt með veg sóttu,
ok tveir með þeim þeira
— þýðr gaf lærdóms prýðir
hǫldum hilmis foldar
hirðnǫfn — synir skírðusk.

Ok bæði hjú sóttu þá nótt blíðan fund byskups með veg — hykk þrifn kómu þeim at mundum — ok tveir synir þeira skírðusk með þeim; {þýðr prýðir lærdóms} gaf hǫldum {{foldar hilmis} hirð}nǫfn.

And both husband and wife had that night a gracious reception from the bishop with honour — I think good fortune came within their grasp — and their two sons were baptised with them; {the kindly adorner of learning} [BISHOP] gave the men names {of the court {of the ruler of the earth}} [(lit. ‘court-names of the ruler of the earth’) = God > HEAVEN].
