Óðin blóta         gørða ek aldrigi;
        hefik þó lengi lifat.
Framar veit ek
        falla munu
        fyrr en þetta it háva höfuð.

Ek gørða aldrigi blóta Óðin; þó hefik lifat lengi. Ek veit Framar munu falla fyrr en þetta it háva höfuð.

I have never sacrificed to Óðinn; yet I have lived a long time. I know Framarr will fall sooner than this high head.
