Bið ek þik, bróðir,         bænar einnar,
einnar bænar         eigi þú synja.
Mik skaltu verja         váðum þínum,
sem fjörsbani         fár annars mun.

Ek bið þik, bróðir, einnar bænar, einnar bænar, synja þú eigi. Skaltu verja mik váðum þínum, sem fár fjörsbani annars mun.

I ask you one favour, brother, one favour, do not deny me [that]. You must wrap me in your garments, as no life-slayer of another [man] would do.
