Var mér skjaldmeyju         skipat it næsta,
þá er orrostu         eiga skyldum.
Veit ek, at ýtar         í Antekju
andrán biðu,         en vér auð fjár.

Var mér skipat it næsta skjaldmeyju, þá er skyldum eiga orrostu. Ek veit, at ýtar biðu {andrán} í Antekju, en vér auð fjár.

I was placed next to a shield maiden when we had to engage in battle. I know that men suffered {life-robbery} [DEATH] in Antioch, but we [got] great wealth.
