Lundr reis gjalfrs frá grundu
goðs orðum … skorðaðr
elds; vas áðr til foldar
ormstalls boði fallinn.
Logstýfir bað leyfa
ljóss engla sér þengil
Vánar vífi sínu
vegs þessi rǫk segja.

{Lundr {elds gjalfrs}} reis frá grundu … skorðaðr orðum goðs; {boði {ormstalls}} vas áðr fallinn til foldar. {{Vánar log}stýfir} bað {þengil {ljóss vegs engla}} leyfa sér segja vífi sínu þessi rǫk.

{The tree {of the fire of the sea}} [GOLD > MAN] rose from the ground … supported by the words of God; {the messenger {of the serpent-lair}} [GOLD > MAN] had previously fallen to earth. {The snipper {of the fire of Vôn <river>}} [(lit. ‘the fire-snipper of Vôn’) GOLD > GENEROUS MAN] asked {the ruler {of the bright path of angels}} [HEAVEN > = God] to permit him to tell his wife about these omens.
