Ok annan dag unnar
elg-Þróttr í stað sótti,
fyrr þanns flærðar þverri
framlyndum goð sýndisk.
Sannhugguðr leit seggja
snildar framr á hamri
hauks í hjartar líki
hirðvandan gram standa.

Ok annan dag sótti {{unnar elg-}Þróttr} í stað, þanns goð sýndisk fyrr {framlyndum þverri flærðar}. {Sannhugguðr hauks}, framr snildar, leit {hirðvandan gram seggja} standa á hamri í líki hjartar.

And the next day {the Þróttr <= Óðinn> {of the elk of the wave}} [(lit. ‘the elk-Þróttr of the wave’) SHIP > SEAFARER] sought the place where God had shown himself previously {to the brave diminisher of falsehood} [HOLY MAN]. {The true comforter of the hawk} [WARRIOR], outstanding in courage, beheld {the ruler of men, careful chooser of his retainers} [= God], standing on a cliff in the shape of a hart.
