þás Sigurð hǫfðu
Sás í fold
hjá feðr sínum
búinn at liggja.
Vasat saklaust, þás hǫfðu ræntan Sigurð, frœkinn mann, fjǫrvi. Sás búinn at liggja í fold hjá feðr sínum í Bjǫrgyn.
‘It was not without cause when they robbed Sigurðr, the daring man, of his life. That one is fit to lie in the ground next to his father in Bergen.’
