Lyptak ljósu         lofi þjóðkonungs;
upps fyr ýta         jarls mærð borin.
Hverr muni heyra         hróðr gjǫflata
seggr svá kveðinn         seims ok hnossa?

Lyptak ljósu lofi þjóðkonungs; mærð jarls [e]s borin upp fyr ýta. Hverr seggr muni heyra hróðr gjǫflata seims ok hnossa kveðinn svá?

I lifted up the bright praise of the mighty king; the splendour of the jarl is proclaimed before men. What man may hear a praise-poem about a miser with gold and treasures composed in such a way?
