Mjök er vandgætt,         hvé verða skal
um borinn öðrum         at banaorði.
Þik Drótt um bar         af Danmörku
en mik sjálfan         á Svíþjóðu.

Mjök er vandgætt, hvé skal verða um borinn öðrum at banaorði. Drótt um bar þik af Danmörku en mik sjálfan á Svíþjóðu.

It is very difficult to deal with how one must be born to become the slayer of another. Drótt gave birth to you in Denmark and to me myself in Sweden.
