Ek hefi vísendi         víst í brjósti
meiri miklu,         en menn vita.
Sé ek, hvar húkir         hirð á bekkjum,
hjartadeigir,         ef herja skal.

Ek hefi víst miklu meiri vísendi í brjósti, en menn vita. Ek sé, hvar hirð húkir á bekkjum, hjartadeigir, ef skal herja.

I have certainly much more knowledge in my breast than people know. I see where the retinue cowers on the benches, men soft of heart, if there should be any fighting.
