Gang hóf ek upp í Angri,         eigraða ek á til Steigar;
skálm †glotadrra skroptu†,         sk*arn tadda ek á til Karmtar,
elda mun ek á Jaðri         ok at Útsteini blása.
Þá mun ek austr við Elfi,         áðr dagr á mik skíni,
ok með brúðkonum beigla         ok bráðliga gefit jarli.

Ek hóf upp gang í Angri, ek eigraða á til Steigar; skálm †glotadrra skroptu†, ek tadda sk*arn á til Karmtar, ek mun elda á Jaðri ok blása at Útsteini. Þá mun ek austr við Elfi, áðr dagr skíni á mik, ok beigla með brúðkonum ok bráðliga gefit jarli.

I began my expedition in Angr, I sauntered on to Steig; [my] short sword … , I spread dung [on the way] to Karmøy, I will kindle fire in Jæren and blow at Utstein. Then I will go east near the Götaälv, before day shines upon me, and lumber about with the bridesmaids and at once be given [in marriage] to the jarl.
