TorfE Lv 4I/8 — af

Rekit hefk Rǫgnvalds dauða
— rétt skiptu því nornir —
— nús folkstuðill fallinn —
at fjórðungi mínum.
Verpið, snarpir sveinar,
þvít sigri vér rôðum,
(skatt velk hônum harðan)
at Háfœtu grjóti.

Hefk rekit dauða Rǫgnvalds at fjórðungi mínum; nornir skiptu því rétt; nús folkstuðill fallinn. Verpið grjóti at Háfœtu, snarpir sveinar, þvít vér rôðum sigri; velk hônum harðan skatt.

I have avenged Rǫgnvaldr’s death for my quarter-share; the norns arranged that rightly; now the people’s support [RULER] is fallen. Throw stones at Háfœta (‘Long-legs’), brave lads, because we hold the victory; I choose hard tribute for him.
