Öll er orðin         ætt Skjöldunga
lofðungs lundar         at limum einum.
Bræðr sá ek mína         á berum sitja
en Sævils rekka         á söðluðum.

Öll ætt Skjöldunga, lundar lofðungs, er orðin at limum einum. Bræðr mína sá ek sitja á berum en rekka Sævils á söðluðum.

All the family of the Skjǫldungar, the princely trees <men>, have become branches only. My brothers I saw riding bareback, but Sævill’s men on saddled [horses].
