Sel ek þér Snarvendil;         sigr mun honum fylgja,
jöfurr inn stórráði,         um þína aldrdaga.
Snúiz þín æfi æ         til sigrs ok gæfu,
hvar sem þú heim kannar;         hugr er í konungs barni.

Ek sel þér Snarvendil; sigr mun fylgja honum um aldrdaga þína, inn stórráði jöfurr. Snúiz æfi þín æ til sigrs ok gæfu, hvar sem þú kannar heim; hugr er í barni konungs.

I give you Snarvendill; victory will follow it throughout the days of your life, ambitious prince. May your life always turn to victory and good luck wherever you go in the world; there is courage in the king’s son.
