Hræðiz eigi faðir meyjar,         meðan heill er Dragvendill.
Vita ek víst þikkjumz,         verðr honum ei bilt þrysvar.

{Faðir meyjar} hræðiz eigi, meðan Dragvendill er heill. Ek þikkjumz vita víst, honum verðr ei bilt þrysvar.

{The father of the maiden} [= Ketill] is not afraid, whilst Dragvendill is intact. I think I know for certain he will not fail three times.
