Hefir þú         fyrr ór sæti
mér eigi boðit         upp at standa;
feigð mun vándslig         vísa granda.
Hanga skyldu hinir         við inn hæsta gálga;
þeir munu þik svíkja;         þat segi ek fyrir gerla.

Þú hefir eigi fyrr boðit mér at standa upp ór sæti; vándslig feigð mun granda vísa. Hinir skyldu hanga við inn hæsta gálga; þeir munu svíkja þik; ek segi þat gerla fyrir.

You have not previously ordered me to get up from my seat; a bad fate will harm the ruler. Those men should hang from the highest gallows; they will deceive you; I prophesy that clearly.
