Sá ek ei forðum         — þó hefik farit víða —
flent reðr fyrri         fara með bekkjum.
Þiggi Maurnir         þetta blæti!
En þú, Aðalgrímr,         tak enn við Vǫlsa!

Ek sá ei forðum flent reðr fara fyrri með bekkjum; þó hefik farit víða. Þiggi Maurnir þetta blæti! En þú, Aðalgrímr, tak enn við Vǫlsa!

I have never before seen a penis with the foreskin pulled back pass first along the benches; yet I have travelled far and wide. May Maurnir receive this offering! But you, Aðalgrímr (‘Chief Grímr’), take Vǫlsi too!
