Vá bar Vémundr,         er vega þorði,
— Björn ok Bersi —         fyrir buðlungi.
Fylkði sínu         sá framligast
lofðungr liði,         meðan lifa mátti.

Vémundr, er vega þorði, bar vá fyrir buðlungi — Björn ok Bersi —. Sá lofðungr fylkði liði sínu framligast, meðan mátti lifa.

Vémundr, who dared to fight, endured danger for the prince [and so did] Bjǫrn and Bersi. That king drew up his troops most excellently, as long as he lived.
