Rekkr með reiðiþokka
rjóðr anzaði fljóði:
‘Legg þú niðr, in leiða,
lygð á mig til blygðar;
brims ætla eg bríma
brík að fastna ríka,
en fielausa fýsaz
faldreið skal eg aldri.’

Rjóðr rekkr anzaði fljóði með reiðiþokka: ‘Legg þú niðr, in leiða, lygð á mig til blygðar; eg ætla að fastna {ríka brík {bríma brims}}, en {fielausa faldreið} skal eg aldri fýsaz.’

The red-faced champion answered the woman with a wrathful mind: ‘Cease, loathsome one, the lie about me to shame me [lit. for shame]; I intend to be engaged to {a rich plank {of the fire of the ocean}} [GOLD > WOMAN], and {a penniless headdress-chariot} [WOMAN] I shall never desire.’
