Ibere, is Iberia, Iberian Peninsula, is located in the southwest corner of Europe. The peninsula is principally divided between Portugal and Spain, comprising most of their territory. It also includes Andorra and a small part of France along the peninsula's north-eastern edge, as well as Gibraltar on its south coast, a small peninsula that forms an overseas territory of the United Kingdom.

Grenade= Granada is the capital city of the province of Granada, in the autonomous community of Andalusia, Spain. Granada is located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains, at the confluence of four rivers, the Beiro, the Darro, the Genil and the Monachil.

The Guadalquivir, is the fifth longest river in the Iberian Peninsula and the second longest river with its entire length in Spain. The Guadalquivir river is the only great navigable river in Spain. Currently it is navigable from the Gulf of Cádiz to Seville, but in Roman times it was navigable to Córdoba.

Córdoba, also called Cordova in English, is a city in Andalusia, southern Spain, and the capital of the province of Córdoba. It was a Roman settlement, then colonized by Muslim armies in the eighth century.

Thus, we might translate

Through the areas of the great river Guadalquivir, (Bethique, Latin, Betis Baetis?)
Far into the Iberian Peninsula, to the kingdom of Granada,
Cross repulsed by the people of Mohammad,
One from Cordoba will betray his country.
