Ok til þings
þriðja jǫfri
Hveðrungs mær
ór heimi bauð,
þás Halfdanr,
sás Holtum bjó,

of notit hafði.
Ok buðlung

sigrhafendr
síðan fôlu.

Ok mær Hveðrungs bauð þriðja jǫfri ór heimi til þings, þás Halfdanr, sás bjó Holtum, hafði of notit dóms norna. Ok sigrhafendr fôlu buðlung síðan á Borrói.

And the maiden of Hveðrungr <= Loki> [= Hel] invited a third ruler out of the world to a meeting when Hálfdan, who lived in Holtan, had used up the allotment of the norns. And afterwards the victorious ones buried the ruler in Borre.
