Lítt honum sæmir         hjá seggja liði,
þeim er í gullvefjum         glóa allir.
Siti hann yzt         af seggjum mínum;
skal honum veita vel         með várum þegnum.

Sæmir honum lítt hjá liði seggja, þeim er allir glóa í gullvefjum. Siti hann yzt af seggjum mínum; skal veita honum vel með þegnum várum.

It would hardly be appropriate for him to be among the company of men who all glitter in gold clothing. Let him sit farthest out among my men; he shall be well served among our freemen.
