Snœfrir drógu enn meðal jǫfra
— aldir kóðu varla haldask
ǫðlings heit við allvald mætan —
árskapðan grun vinir hvárskis.
Minnigr bjoggi siklingr sunnan
sunda vigg, en jarl stǫkk undan
— ýtar brugðusk jǫfri nýtum —
austr of fjall, með drengi snjalla.
Snœfrir vinir hvárskis drógu enn árskapðan grun meðal jǫfra; aldir kóðu heit ǫðlings varla haldask við mætan allvald. Minnigr siklingr bjoggi vigg sunda sunnan með snjalla drengi, en jarl stǫkk undan austr of fjall; ýtar brugðusk nýtum jǫfri.
Skilful friends of neither [prince] again aroused the long-standing mistrust between the princes; people said the chieftain’s promises to the excellent mighty ruler were hardly kept. The mindful king steered steeds of the seas [SHIPS] from the south with brave men, and the jarl fled east across the mountains; men abandoned the able prince.

 með snjalla drengi ‘with brave men’: This phrase could be construed with either the first cl. of the second helmingr (minnigr siklingr bjoggi vigg sunda sunnan ‘the mindful king steered steeds of the seas from the south’; so Skj B) or with the second cl. (en jarl stǫkk undan austr of fjall ‘and the jarl fled east across the mountains’; so NN §1344). While the first option is syntactically simpler, the second is contextually preferable, since the prose text, l. 7 of the st. and Anon (Hák) 3 indicate that Skúli was abandoned by many of his men.
