Ek sé gull á gestum         ok guðvefjar skikkjur;
mér fellr hugr til hringa;         heldr vil ek bjúg en ljúga.
Kenni ek þik, konungr minn;         kominn ertu, Óláfr.

Ek sé gull ok skikkjur guðvefjar á gestum; mér fellr hugr til hringa; heldr vil ek bjúg en ljúga. Kenni ek þik, konungr minn; kominn ertu, Óláfr.

I see gold and cloaks of precious material on the guests; I am pleased by the rings; I would rather be crippled than tell a lie. I recognize you, my king; you have come, Óláfr.
