Auð þættumk ek         eiga nógan,
ef ek inn ágæta         Álf um fyndak.
Blót gaf ek honum         ok bú fjogur;
hann mun yðr alla         í eld draga.

Ek þættumk eiga nógan auð, ef ek um fyndak inn ágæta Álf. Ek gaf honum blót ok fjogur bú; hann mun draga yðr alla í eld.

I would consider myself to have wealth enough, if I could recover the excellent Álfr. I gave sacrifices for him and four farms; he will fling you all into the fire.
