Brunnu allvalds inni
— eldr, hykk, at sal felldi —
— eimr skaut á her hrími —

Halfgǫr inni allvalds brunnu við Nið sjalfa; hykk, at eldr felldi sal; eimr skaut hrími á her.

The half-finished houses of the mighty ruler burned near Nidelven itself; I believe that fire felled the hall; flame shot soot at the army.
