Sefi gjörðiz saurlífr;
sárum … hugarfár,
lýtanna logi heitr
lerkað fekk þann klerk,
hverja nótt að hann fór
Hrundar á gulls fund
villr yfir vassfall;
váða giekk um hans ráð.

Sefi gjörðiz saurlífr; hugarfár … sárum heitr logi lýtanna fekk lerkað þann klerk, að hann fór hverja nótt á fund {Hrundar gulls}, villr, yfir vassfall; váða giekk um hans ráð.

His mind became lecherous; the mind-danger … with bitterness(es) [lit. hurts] the hot flame of sins tormented that cleric, so that he went every night to meet {a Hrund <valkyrie> of gold} [WOMAN], crazed, across a river; danger threatened his condition.
