Hvergi þótti ek         í því liði
opt aukvisi         ættar minnar.
Mik kváðu þeir         mann snarpastan,
þvíat hverr öðrum         hróðrs leitaði.

Ek þótti hvergi opt aukvisi ættar minnar í því liði. Þeir kváðu mik snarpastan mann, þvíat hverr leitaði öðrum hróðrs.

I was by no means often thought to be a degenerate [member] of my family in that troop. They called me the most dashing man, for each sought for praise for the other.
