Æ lystir þik         æðru at mæla;
mun ekki sá konungr         sáttir rjúfa.
Gull eigum þar         ok gersimar,
hringa rauða         frá hans búum.

Þik lystir æ at mæla æðru; sá konungr mun ekki rjúfa sáttir. Eigum þar gull ok gersimar, rauða hringa frá búum hans.

You always wish to utter words of fear; this king will not break [our] agreement. There we are entitled to gold and jewels, red rings from his estates.
