Skein inn skrautligi raunar;
skjöldr hekk áðr á tjöldum;
oss verðr opt af þessu
angr mest, er ek lít þangat.
Skarð erat skapligt orðit;
skjótt mun ek snauðr af auði,
ef braut með gjöf gautar
grandlaust bera randir.

Inn skrautligi skein raunar; skjöldr hekk áðr á tjöldum; angr verðr oss opt mest af þessu, er ek lít þangat. Skarð erat orðit skapligt; ek mun skjótt snauðr af auði, ef gautar með gjöf bera randir braut grandlaust.

The splendid one really shone; the shield previously hung on the wall-hangings; sorrow often strikes us [me] most because of this, when I look over there. The gap has not happened suitably, I will quickly [be] stripped of wealth, if men with a gift carry away shields scot-free.
