Harðr muntu heima,         er þú hyggz öllu ráða
oss hjá í dýrum         höllum várum.
Hefir þú brand hvassan         brynju ok hjálm vænan
ok Sófnis bingi aðra,         en set þik aptr af því.

Muntu harðr heima, er þú hyggz ráða öllu hjá oss í dýrum höllum várum. Þú hefir hvassan brand, brynju ok vænan hjálm ok {aðra bingi Sófnis}, en set þik aptr af því.

You must be tough at home, since you think to decide everything among us in our excellent halls. You have a keen sword, a coat of mail and beautiful helmet and {other beds of Sófnir <snake>} [GOLD], but restrain yourself from that.
