Stundum vér til stikka;
styrr vex í Danmǫrku;
esat Sveins synir sáttir
at sinn fǫður dauðan.
Haraldr skal vígi verja
— þás vel tamiðr stikki —
jǫrð af œrnu magni
fyr ellifu brœðrum.

Vér stundum til stikka; styrr vex í Danmǫrku; synir Sveins esat sáttir at dauðan fǫður sinn. Haraldr skal verja jǫrð vígi af œrnu magni fyr ellifu brœðrum; þás stikki vel tamiðr.

We are pondering a poem; strife grows in Denmark; Sveinn’s sons are not reconciled after their father’s death. Haraldr must protect the land in battle with plenty of power against eleven brothers; now the poem is suitably prepared.
