‘Hví es þér Eireks vôn *         heldr an annarra konunga?’
‘Því at mǫrgu landi *         hann hefr mæki roðit
        ok blóðugt sverð borit.’

‘Hví es þér vôn * Eireks heldr an annarra konunga?’ ‘Því at hann hefr roðit mæki mǫrgu landi * ok borit blóðugt sverð.’

‘Why do you expect Eiríkr rather than other kings?’ ‘Because he has reddened his blade in many a land and borne a bloody sword.’
