text and translation

Nú vill kapp*
við konungsfrænda
afreksmaðr
engi deila.
Giptudrjúgr,
sem glíkligt es,
verðr vinsæll
vella deilir.

Nú vill engi afreksmaðr deila kapp* við konungsfrænda. {Vinsæll deilir vella} verðr giptudrjúgr, sem es glíkligt.
 
‘Now no outstanding man wishes to try his courage against the king’s kinsman. The popular distributor of pure gold [GENEROUS MAN] becomes lasting in good luck, as is likely.
