Sinn skreytti dag dróttinn
dáðsterkr framaverkum,
rekkum*s rann til drykkjar
reint vatn fram ór steini.
* Ráðmegninn lét rigna
risnufimr af himni
mat, þeims manna heitir,
margri þjóð til bjargar.

Dáðsterkr dróttinn skreytti sinn dag framaverkum, *[e]s reint vatn rann fram ór steini til drykkjar rekkum. * Ráðmegninn, risnufimr, lét rigna af himni mat, þeims heitir manna, til bjargar margri þjóð.

The deed-strong Lord adorned his day with deeds of distinction, when pure water flowed forth from a rock as a drink for men. The one strong in counsel, quick with hospitality, caused that food which is called manna to rain from heaven as a help to many people.
