Sinna verka        nýtr seggja hverr;
        sæll er sá, sem gótt gerir;
auði frá
        * mér ætluð var
        sandi orpin sæng.

Seggja hverr nýtr verka sinna; sæll er sá, sem gótt gerir; frá auði var * mér ætluð sæng orpin sandi.

Every man benefits from his deeds; fortunate is he who does good; away from riches there was intended for me a bed heaped up with sand.
