Hverir eru skálkar,         er skipum ráða,
heldr harðsnúnir,         happalausir?
Vér skulum lýði         lífi ræna
ok með oss öllum         auði skipta.

Hverir eru skálkar, er ráða skipum, heldr harðsnúnir, happalausir? Vér skulum ræna lýði lífi ok skipta öllum auði með oss.

Who are the rogues who command the ships, rather stubborn [and] luckless? We will rob the men of life and divide all the wealth among us.
