Vertu ei svá ærr, maðr,         at þú Ölvi grandir;
vertu honum heill, hilmir;         hann er þér hollr, fylkir.
Láttu eigi illmæli         æða lund þína;
vel þér vini tryggva;         vertu þeim hollr, dróttinn.

Vertu ei svá ærr, maðr, at þú grandir Ölvi; vertu honum heill, hilmir; hann er þér hollr, fylkir. Láttu eigi illmæli æða lund þína; vel þér tryggva vini; vertu þeim hollr, dróttinn.

Do not be so furious, man, that you injure Ǫlvir; be true to him, ruler; he is loyal to you, king. Do not let slander enrage your temperament; choose for yourself trustworthy friends; be loyal to them, lord.
