Hér mun Innsteinn         til jarðar hníga,
hoskr at höfði         hers oddvita.
Þat munu seggir         at sögum gjöra,
at Hálfr konungr         hlæjandi dó.

Hér mun Innsteinn hníga til jarðar, hoskr at höfði {oddvita hers}. Seggir munu gjöra þat at sögum, at Hálfr konungr dó hlæjandi.

Here Innsteinn will sink to the ground, prudent by the head {of the leader of the army} [KING = Hálfr]. Men will fashion it into tales that king Hálfr died laughing.
