Nú em ek inn kominn         Úlfi at segja,
at hans synir         höggnir liggja.
Nú fari, Eysteinn,         ef ér vilið,
fleiri at freista         við fleina við.

Nú em ek kominn inn at segja Úlfi, at synir hans liggja höggnir. Fari nú fleiri at freista við {við fleina}, Eysteinn, ef ér vilið.

Now I have come in to tell Úlfr that his sons lie slain. Now let more [men] go to try [their strength] against {the tree of spears} [WARRIOR = Útsteinn], Eysteinn, if you wish.
