Þrjár nætr skulum þessar,
ok þó saman, byggja
†hressvar† nætr í höllu,
áðr vit heilug goð blótim.
Þó munu mein á mínum
megi til löng of verða;
heldr ertu bráðr at byrja
þann, er bein hefir engi.

Skulum byggja þessar þrjár nætr, †hressvar† nætr, í höllu, ok þó saman, áðr vit blótim heilug goð. Þó munu mein á megi mínum of verða til löng; ertu heldr bráðr at byrja þann, er hefir engi bein.

Let us live for these three nights, … nights, in the hall, and moreover together, before the two of us sacrifice to the holy gods. Yet the harmful consequences for my son will be too long-lasting; you are rather hasty in begetting the one who has no bones.
