Þat muntu finna,         er þú flór mokar,
at þú eigi ert         Án bogsveigir.
Þú ert brauðsveigir         heldr en bogsveigir
ostasveigir         en eigi * álmsveigir.

Muntu finna þat, er þú mokar flór, at þú ert eigi Án bogsveigir. Þú ert brauðsveigir, heldr en bogsveigir, ostasveigir, en eigi * álmsveigir.

You will find that out, when you muck out the floor, that you are not Án bogsveigir (‘Bow-bender’). You are a bread-bender rather than bow-bender, a cheese-bender, but not a bow-bender.
