Styrr ok Ári,         Steinn ok Kári,
Vöttr, Véseti,         Vémundr, Hnefi.
Vér á einn bekk         allir sátum,
teitir ok reifir;         því em ek trauðr flugar.

Styrr ok Ári, Steinn ok Kári, Vöttr, Véseti, Vémundr, Hnefi. Vér sátum allir á einn bekk, teitir ok reifir; því em ek trauðr flugar.

Styrr and Ári, Steinn and Kári, Vǫttr, Véseti, Vémundr, Hnefi. We all occupied a single bench, merry and cheerful; that is why I am reluctant to flee.
