Jósum vér, en yfir         fell ór svalri báru,
teitir á tvau borð         tíu dægr ok átta.
Þat var kynför         kænna drengja,
hversu vér fórum         með Friðþjófi.

Vér jósum teitir á tvau borð tíu dægr ok átta, en fell yfir ór svalri báru. Þat var kynför kænna drengja, hversu vér fórum með Friðþjófi.

We baled in good spirits on two sides for eighteen days, and [water] cascaded on board from the cold wave. That was an extraordinary journey of skilful men, how we voyaged with Friðþjófr.
