Skóð lætr skína rauðan
skjǫld, es dregr at hjaldri;
brúðr sér Aurnis jóða
ófǫr konungs gǫrva.
Sviptir sveiflankjapta
svanni holdi manna;
ulfs munn litar innan
óðlôt kona blóði;
ok óðlôt kona bloði.

Skóð lætr rauðan skjǫld skína, es dregr at hjaldri; {brúðr {jóða Aurnis}} sér gǫrva ófǫr konungs. Svanni sviptir holdi manna sveiflankjapta; óðlôt kona litar munn ulfs innan blóði; ok óðlôt kona bloði.

The troll-woman lets the red shield shine when it draws close to battle; {the bride {of Aurnir’s <giant’s> brood}} [GIANTS > GIANTESS] sees the king’s destined defeat at hand. The woman tosses men’s flesh to the grinding jaw; the raving female reddens the wolf’s mouth within with blood; and the raving female with blood.
