Anon Leið 28VII/5 — enda

Hátt gengr dýrð, sús dróttinn
dáðgladdan her saddi
— opt es kuðr at krapti
Kristr — á lítlum vistum.
Tolf, segir elda elfar
Ullr, vandlaupar fullir
— matr vannsk mǫnnum snotrum —
mikill fengr at af gengi.

Hátt gengr dýrð sús dróttinn saddi dáðgladdan her á lítlum vistum; Kristr es opt kuðr at krapti. Ullr elda elfar segir, at mikill fengr, tolf vandlaupar fullir, gengi af; matr vannsk snotrum mǫnnum.

Far and wide spreads the glory [from the fact] that the Lord fed the deed-gladdened host with few provisions; Christ is often known for his strength. An Ullr <god> of the fires of the river [GOLD > MAN] says that a huge catch, twelve baskets full, was left over; the food sufficed for the wise men.
