Hafa skal ek baug         ór beggja höndum
ór svefnhúsi         seggja meiðma.
Sá er hugr á mér         af þeim hringi digrum;
verðr þeim, er varðar         við lítilmagna.

Ek skal hafa baug ór svefnhúsi ór beggja höndum seggja meiðma. Sá hugr er á mér af þeim digrum hringi; verðr þeim, er varðar við lítilmagna.

I am determined to have a ring out of the sleeping house from both arms of the men of treasures. That thought is upon me on account of that substantial ring; let it belong to the man who protects [it] from a weakling.
