Hvar váruð* þá,         veslar snýtur,
er vér heldum aski         í Elfarsund,
teitir ok reifir         at Trönuvágum?
Þar lá Ögmundr         Eyþjófsbani,
trauðastr flugar,         á tveim skipum.

Hvar váruð* þá, veslar snýtur, er vér heldum aski í Elfarsund, teitir ok reifir at Trönuvágum? Þar lá Ögmundr Eyþjófsbani, trauðastr flugar, á tveim skipum.

Where were you then, pathetic snotty wretches, when we sailed our ship into the Götaälv estuary, happy and cheerful, to Trǫnuvágar? There lay Ǫgmundr Eyþjófsbani (‘Eyþjófr’s killer’), most reluctant to flee, in two ships.
