Slógum tjöldum,         en sumir fóru
björnu at veiða,         þeir er boga kunnu.
Réðum í eyju         upp at kynda
bál brenniligt;         stóð björn fyrir.

Slógum tjöldum, en sumir fóru at veiða björnu, þeir er kunnu boga. Réðum at kynda brenniligt bál upp í eyju; björn stóð fyrir.

We pitched tents, and some went to hunt bears, those who could handle bows. We lit a blazing bonfire up on the island; a bear stood in front of it.
