Sé ek, hvar sitja         synir Hálfdanar
Hróarr ok Helgi         heilir báðir.
Þeir munu Fróða         fjörvi ræna.

Sé ek, hvar synir Hálfdanar sitja, Hróarr ok Helgi, báðir heilir. Þeir munu ræna Fróða fjörvi.

I see where the sons of Hálfdan sit, Hróarr and Helgi, both well. They will rob Fróði of life.
