Sé ek, hvar sitja         Sveinn ok Helgi;
þeir eru rógberar         rekka á millum.
Þikjaz garpar         í gamanmálum;
eru löskvir tveir         lymskudrengir.

Ek sé, hvar Sveinn ok Helgi sitja; þeir eru rógberar á millum rekka. Þikjaz garpar í gamanmálum; eru tveir löskvir lymskudrengir.

I see where Sveinn and Helgi are sitting; they are slander-bearers among men. They appear brave fellows in their joking speech; they are two good-for-nothing men of cunning.
