Kali Lv 1II/3 — rǫstum ‘the currents’

Hvé launa þér þínir
þingmæltir dýrlingar
— vestr bifask rengr í rǫstum
— reyn oss jǫfurr! — hnossir?

Hvé launa þingmæltir dýrlingar þínir þér hnossir? Vestr bifask rengr í rǫstum; reyn oss, jǫfurr!

How do your assembly-eloquent darlings repay you for your treasures? In the west, ship-frames tremble in the currents; test us, prince!
