Vér skulum, hálfir         herjar þessa,
sáttir sækja         frá sjó neðan.
Ásmundr hefir         oss um boðna
hringa rauða,         sem hafa viljum.

Vér, hálfir þessa herjar, skulum sækja sáttir neðan frá sjó. Ásmundr hefir oss rauða hringa um boðna, sem viljum hafa.

We, half of this host, shall go on good terms up from the sea. Ásmundr has offered us red rings, which we want to have.
