Fádæmi verða        í flestum stöðum
        goldin grimliga;
á hólm þeir gengu
        fyr it horska víf,
        ok fengu báðir bana.

Fádæmi verða goldin grimliga í flestum stöðum; þeir gengu á hólm fyr it horska víf, ok báðir fengu bana.

Abnormal events are repaid fiercely in most places; they went to duel for the wise lady, and both were killed.
