Allt ferr eptir einu,         †er margs vita frægra
vitar til vina list†         af Nistils fólki.
Fyrr skyldir þú hanga         á hávum gálga
en í †glaumtigum†;         gakk þú ei framar hóti.

Allt ferr eptir einu, †er margs vita frægra vitar til vina list† af fólki Nistils. Þú skyldir hanga á hávum gálga fyrr en í †glaumtigum†; gakk þú ei hóti framar.

Everything goes in the same way, … from the people of Nistill. You ought to hang on the high gallows sooner than in … ; do not go one bit further.
