Hregg Lv 2VIII (GHr 2)/3 — Þórðar ‘of Þórðr’s’

Glez Hreggviðr         af Gríms dauða,
Þórðar ok þar með         þrjóta lífstundir.
Mun flokkr sjá         fjanda minna
fyrir Hrólfi         hníga verða.

Hreggviðr glez af dauða Gríms, ok lífstundir Þórðar þrjóta þar með. Sjá flokkr fjanda minna mun verða hníga fyrir Hrólfi.

Hreggviðr rejoices in the death of Grímr, and the hours of Þórðr’s life are diminishing as well. That group of my enemies will come to fall before Hrólfr.
