Loosely translated:
May the gods and inn be angry.
May the bonds chase the king
from the land. In such a way they
should pay him back for robbing my money.
May Freyr and Njrr let the oppressor
of the people run away from the lands.
May the ss of the land be hateful to
the one who defiles sanctuaries.
