text and translation

Út lét stǫng á Stræti
sterkr dýrligra merkja
— dúðusk dǫrr — af reiði
Dags sonr bera fagra.
Hnigu menn í gný Gunnar
gagls fyr strengjar hagli;
brœðr hafa barzk í miðri
Bjǫrgyn fyr ósynju.

{Sterkr sonr Dags} lét bera fagra stǫng dýrligra merkja út á Stræti af reiði; dǫrr dúðusk. Menn hnigu fyr {hagli strengjar} í {gný {gagls Gunnar}}; brœðr hafa barzk í miðri Bjǫrgyn fyr ósynju.
 
‘The strong son of Dagr [= Grégóríus] let the fair pole of the precious standard be carried out onto Stræti (‘the Street’) with wrath; spears shook. Men sank down before the hail of the bowstring [ARROWS] in the din of Gunnr’s <valkyrie’s> gosling [RAVEN/EAGLE > BATTLE]; brothers have fought in the middle of Bergen without cause.
