Ok fimm, sás gaf gumnum
gló-Lista, vann kristin,
ljótbnanda lautar,
lǫnd élboði Gǫndlar.
Hvern viti hjalma þornar
— hann vas ríkstr konungmanna —
elda runn, es unni
eljun slíkt, at telja?

Ok {{Gǫndlar él}boði}, sás gaf gumnum {gló-Lista {ljótbnanda lautar}}, vann kristin fimm lǫnd. {Hvern runn elda} viti {þornar hjalma} at telja, es unni eljun slíkt? Hann vas ríkstr konungmanna.

And {the offerer {of the storm of Gǫndul <valkyrie>}} [(lit. ‘storm-offerer of Gǫndul’) BATTLE > WARRIOR], he who gave men {the gleaming Lista {of the ugly edging of the dale}} [= Miðgarðsormr > GOLD], made five lands Christian. {What bush of swords} [WARRIOR] do {thorn-trees of helmets} [WARRIORS] know to mention, who loved enterprise in such a way? He was the mightiest of kingly men.
