Einhlítr ek þóttumz,         áðr en hér kómum,
um flestar allar         farir várar,
hvat sem ferlig         flögð um gleipa.
Lastik dreng dæsinn;         dreif ek á vit fanga.

Ek þóttumz einhlítr um flestar allar farir várar, áðr en kómum hér, hvat sem ferlig flögð um gleipa. Lastik dæsinn dreng; dreif ek á vit fanga.

I considered myself self-reliant on almost all our [my] journeys, before we [I] came here, whatever hideous ogresses chatter about. I speak ill of the sluggish man; I moved forcefully in search of a catch.
