Annat var, þá er inni.
Allstórir saman fórum;
stóð þar upp í stafni
Stórólfs burr inn frækni,
þá er langskipum lagði
lundr at Eyrasundi;
nú mun ek tældr í tryggðum
trolla byggðir kanna.

Annat var, þá er inni. Allstórir fórum saman; {inn frækni burr Stórólfs} stóð þar upp í stafni, þá er lundr lagði langskipum at Eyrasundi; ek, tældr í tryggðum, mun nú kanna byggðir trolla.

It used to be different, when inside. We mighty ones travelled together; {the brave son of Stórólfr} [= Ormr] stood up there at the prow when the tree <warrior> sailed the warships towards the Øresund; I, betrayed under truce, will now explore the dwellings of trolls.
