Börðumz einn við einn         en endr við tvá,
fimm ok fjóra         fletmegninga,
sex ok við sjau         senn á velli,
einn ok við átta,         þó ek enn lifi.

Börðumz einn við einn en endr við tvá, fimm ok fjóra fletmegninga, sex ok við sjau senn á velli ok einn við átta, þó ek lifi enn.

We [I] fought one against one and again against two, five and four hall-fighters, six and against seven at a time on the field, and one against eight, yet I am still alive.
