Hefnt mun verða Hálfs ins frækna,
því at þeir göfgan gram í griðum véltu.
Olli morði ok mannskaða
Ásmundr konungr illu heilli.
Hálfs ins frækna mun verða hefnt, því at þeir véltu göfgan gram í griðum. Ásmundr konungr olli morði ok mannskaða illu heilli.
‘Hálfr the valiant will be avenged, for they betrayed the noble king in a time of truce. Through an evil fate, King Ásmundr caused murder and loss of life. ’
