Skaltu eigi gulli         né gersimum
með heilum hug         heima ráða.
Kemr þér bani         brátt at höndum,
ef vit skulum úti         oddum leika.

Skaltu eigi ráða heima gulli né gersimum með heilum hug. Bani kemr þér brátt at höndum, ef vit skulum leika oddum úti.

You shall not possess [your] gold or treasures at home with a cheerful mind. Death will strike you quickly if we two have to play with weapon-points out here.
