Fregna eigi þat         á fold konur,
at ek fyr höggum         hlífaz léta.
Hlær eigi at því,         at ek hlíða gerðak,
snót svinnhuguð         Sigtúnum í.

Konur á fold fregna eigi þat, at ek léta hlífaz fyr höggum. Svinnhuguð snót í Sigtúnum hlær eigi at því, at ek gerðak hlíða.

Women in the land will not hear tell that I allowed myself to be spared from blows. The quick-thinking lady in Sigtuna will not deride me because I gave ground.
