Áka ek várri         vegsemð hrósa,
þótt hefði Fróðmars         fengit hylli.
Föður hugðumz ek         fræknan eiga;
nú er sagðr fyrir mér:         svína hirðir.

Ek áka hrósa vegsemð várri, þótt hefði fengit hylli Fróðmars. Ek hugðumz eiga fræknan föður; nú er sagðr fyrir mér: hirðir svína.

I cannot praise our honour, though I might have gained Fróðmarr’s favour. I thought myself to have a brave father; now it is said before me: a herder of swine.
