Kaga létu mik mínir
mávangs synir löngum;
ér eruð heim ok heiman
húsgangs meðalfærir.
Rögnvaldr tók at rjóða
rönd í gumna blóði;
hann kom yngstr til Óðins
ógndjarfr sona minna.

Synir mínir létu mik kaga {mávangs} löngum; ér eruð meðalfærir húsgangs heim ok heiman. Rögnvaldr tók at rjóða rönd í blóði gumna; hann, yngstr sona minna, kom ógndjarfr til Óðins.

My sons let me gaze at {the gull-field} [SEA] for a long time; you are hardly capable of begging from house to house. Rǫgnvaldr proceeded to redden a shield in the blood of men; he, the youngest of my sons, went, bold in battle, to Óðinn.
