Hálfr, dreymði mik,         hvatti, at ek berðumz,
ok kvez mér frækn konungr         fylgja skyldu,
— hefir mér gramr verit         góðr í draumi —
hvar sem vér orrostu         eiga skyldum.

Dreymði mik, Hálfr hvatti, at ek berðumz, ok frækn konungr kvez mér fylgja skyldu, hvar sem vér skyldum eiga orrostu; gramr hefir verit mér góðr í draumi.

I dreamed Hálfr urged that I should fight, and the valiant king said that he would follow me, wherever we [I] should have a battle; the prince has been good to me in my dream.
