Men bjóðum þér         máls at gjöldum;
muna drengja vin         dælt at letja.
Fær engi nú         svá fríðar hnossir
fagra bauga,         at ek fara eigi.

Bjóðum þér men at gjöldum máls; muna dælt at letja vin drengja. Engi fær nú svá fríðar hnossir, fagra bauga, at ek fara eigi.

We [I] offer you a necklace as reward for your word; it will not be easy to hold back the friend of the valiant ones. None can give now such beautiful treasures, fair rings, that I will not go.
