Sinn bar of ô, þás annan,
ástvitjuðr, lét sitja,
hraustr erfingja, hristir
Hlakkar skins á bakka.
Ok þás annan sœkja
auðgildir son vildi,
stóð umb ok sásk síðan
sviðr þegn at ô miðri.

{Ástvitjuðr} bar erfingja sinn of ô, þás {hraustr hristir {skins Hlakkar}} lét annan sitja á bakka. Ok þás {auðgildir} vildi sœkja annan son, stóð sviðr þegn at miðri ô ok sásk síðan umb.

{The seeker of love} [HOLY MAN] carried his heir over the river, while {the strong shaker {of the gleam of Hlǫkk <valkyrie>}} [SWORD > WARRIOR] left the other sitting on the bank. And when {the wealth-payer} [GENEROUS MAN] wanted to fetch his other son, the wise man stopped in the middle of the river and then looked about him.
