Læt ek hér fyrir vinnaz,         hvat er Forað mælir;
nauðir mik hvöttu;         nánum er at bjarga.
Hættik eigi         á hólm til sela,
ef í eyju         ærnir væri.

Ek læt vinnaz fyrir hér, hvat er Forað mælir; nauðir hvöttu mik; nánum er at bjarga. Hættik eigi á hólm til sela, ef ærnir væri í eyju.

I will provide a sufficiency for myself here, whatever Forað says; necessities incited me; near ones are to be saved. I would not risk it to the islet for seals if there were enough on the island.
