Kom ek um síðir,         þar er snarir þóttuz
Sigurðr ok Sjólfr         í sveit konungs.
Réð oss skatna lið         skots at beiða
ok skjaldfimi         við skata mengi.

Ek kom um síðir, þar er Sigurðr ok Sjólfr þóttuz snarir í sveit konungs. Lið skatna réð oss at beiða skots ok skjaldfimi við mengi skata.

I came at last to where Sigurðr and Sjólfr considered themselves smart in the king’s company. The troop of warriors advised us [me] to try shooting and agility with the shield against the crowd of men.
