Konung látum vér         keppinn ráða,
fyrr í fólki,         um farir várar.
Hættum, bróðir,         svát honum líki,
fjörvi okkru         með frömum vísi.

Vér látum keppinn konung, fyrr í fólki, ráða um farir várar. Hættum, bróðir, fjörvi okkru með frömum vísi, svát líki honum.

We will let the contentious king, at the head of the host, decide about our journeys. Let us, brother, risk our lives with the valiant leader in such a way as to please him.
