Gekk skarpr Þórðr         fyr skjöldu fram,
hvargi er orrostu         eiga skyldum.
Hann lét Hálfdan         hníga at velli,
fræknan stilli,         ok hans fylgjara.

Skarpr Þórðr gekk fram fyr skjöldu, hvargi er skyldum eiga orrostu. Hann lét Hálfdan hníga at velli, fræknan stilli, ok hans fylgjara.

Strong Þórðr went forwards in front of the shields, wherever we had to fight a battle. He made Hálfdan fall to the ground, that brave leader, together with his followers.
