Upp mun ek nú rísa         ok ganga haugi af,
        alls mér Böðmóðr býðr.
Bróðir minn,
        þótt sæti brautu nær,
        mundi eigi betr um boðit.

Ek mun nú rísa upp ok ganga af haugi, alls Böðmóðr býðr mér. Bróðir minn, þótt sæti nær brautu, mundi eigi betr um boðit.

I will now rise up and leave the mound since Bǫðmóðr invites me. My brother, even if he lived near the road, would not have invited me better.
