Hákun veldr ok hauldum
— harðráðum guð jarðar
tiggja lér með tíri —
teitr þjóðkonungs heiti.
Vald á víðrar foldar
— vindræfrs jǫfurr gæfu
ǫðlingi skóp ungum —
ǫrlyndr skati gǫrla.

Teitr Hákun veldr heiti þjóðkonungs ok hauldum; guð lér harðráðum tiggja jarðar með tíri. Ǫrlyndr skati á gǫrla vald víðrar foldar; {jǫfurr {vindræfrs}} skóp ungum ǫðlingi gæfu.

Cheerful Hákon commands the name ‘mighty king’ and the freeholders; God grants the firm-ruling prince the earth with glory. The liberal-minded monarch has complete control of the wide land; {the ruler {of the wind-roof}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God] created good luck for the young lord.
