Ǫnundr kvazk eigi mundu
við orrostu kosta,
fyrr an sunnan siglði
Sigurðr jarl með húskarla.
Mjǫk fara Magnúss rekkar
mætir upp á stræti,
en Hôkonar haukar
hart skunduðu undan.
 
‘Ǫnundr said he would not engage in battle until Sigurðr jarl sailed from the south with the housecarls. Magnús’s splendid men are rushing up the street, but Hákon’s hawks hurried away quickly.
