Leika barðs á borði
byrhreins fyr þér einum
— gramr mun á foldu fremri
fár — sex tigir ára.
Mér leikr einn ok annarr
ǫldu sveipr í greipum
(því verðk) borðs á barða
(bæginn fyr þér vægja).

Sex tigir ára leika á borði {byrhreins barðs} fyr þér einum; fár gramr á foldu mun fremri. {Einn ok annarr sveipr ǫldu} leikr í greipum mér á {barða borðs}; því verðk, bæginn, fyr þér vægja.

Sixty oars swing on the gunwale {of the breeze-reindeer of the stem} [SHIP], for you alone; few rulers on earth can be more outstanding. {One and another sweeper of the wave} [OAR] plays in my grip on {the whale of the gunwale} [SHIP]; therefore I must, though combative, yield to you.
