Mundi ekki Steini         með Stara þykkja
ógn at etja         við Úlfs sonu,
þvíat ekki var         órum bróður
við dritmenni þitt         dramb at setja.

Steini með Stara mundi ekki þykkja ógn at etja við Úlfs sonu, þvíat ekki var órum bróður at setja dramb við dritmenni þitt.

It would not seem a menace to Steinn together with Stari to fight against Úlfr’s sons, for it was not characteristic of our [my] brother to subdue the arrogance of a shit like you.
