Anon Pl 31VII/6 — réð

unz hvardyggvan hugga
happmildr konungr vildi
láðhofs lyp*ti-Móða
leggjar farms í harmi,
þás við huggun hôva
herstefni* réð efna
siðbjóðr snotra lýða
sín heit friðar veitir.

unz happmildr konungr láðhofs vildi hugga lyp*ti-Móða farms leggjar, hvardyggvan, í harmi, þás siðbjóðr snotra lýða, veitir friðar, réð efna heit sín herstefni* við hôva huggun.

until the mercy-granting king of the earth-temple [SKY/HEAVEN > = God] wished to comfort the bearing-Móði <god> of the cargo of the arm [GOLD > MAN], honourable in everything, in his sorrow, when the faith-bringer to wise men [= Christ], the giver of peace [= Christ], fulfilled his promise to the army-ruler [WARRIOR] with supreme consolation.
