Glez Hreggviðr af góðri för
Hrólfs ins hugdjarfa hingat til landa.
Mun rekkr sá ræsis hefna
á Eiríki ok öllum þeim.
‘Hreggviðr rejoices in the good journey of Hrólfr the bold-hearted to these lands. That warrior will take vengeance for the ruler upon Eiríkr and them all. ’
Glez Hreggviðr af Gríms dauða,
Þórðar ok þar með þrjóta lífstundir.
Mun flokkr sjá fjanda minna
fyrir Hrólfi hníga verða.
‘Hreggviðr rejoices in the death of Grímr, and the hours of Þórðr’s life are diminishing as well. That group of my enemies will come to fall before Hrólfr. ’
Glez Hreggviðr, þá er Hrólfr fær
ungrar meyjar Ingigerðar.
Mun Hólmgarði hilmir stýra,
Sturlaugs sonr; standi kvæði.
‘Hreggviðr will rejoice when Hrólfr marries the young maiden Ingigerðr. The prince, son of Sturlaugr, will govern Novgorod; let the poem cease. ’
