Hér höfum fellt         til foldar
tírarlausa         tólf berserki.
Þó var Sørkvir         þróttrammastr
þeira seggja         en Þröstr annarr.

Hér höfum fellt tólf tírarlausa berserki til foldar. Þó var Sørkvir þróttrammastr þeira seggja, en Þröstr annarr.

Here we have felled twelve inglorious berserks to the ground. Yet Sørkvir was the most powerful in strength of those men, and Þrǫstr was the second.
