Eigi vildu Jótar
reiða gjald til skeiða,
áðr Styrbjarnar stœði
Strandar dýr á landi.
Nús Danmarkar dróttinn
í drengja lið genginn;
landa vanr ok lýða
lifir ánauðigr auðar.

Jótar vildu eigi reiða gjald til skeiða, áðr {dýr Strandar} Styrbjarnar stœði á landi. Nús {dróttinn Danmarkar} genginn í lið drengja; lifir ánauðigr auðar, vanr landa ok lýða.

The Jótar were not willing to pay tribute for ships before {the beasts of Strǫnd <river>} [SHIPS] of Styrbjǫrn stood by the coast. Now {the lord of Denmark} [DANISH KING = Haraldr] has joined the troop of warriors; he lives oppressed by fate, deprived of lands and people.
