Eldr nam at æsaz         en jörð at skjálfa
ok hár logi         við himni gnæfa.
Fár treystiz þar         fylkis rekka
eld at ríða         né yfir stíga.

Eldr nam at æsaz en jörð at skjálfa ok hár logi gnæfa við himni. Fár rekka fylkis treystiz þar at ríða eld né stíga yfir.

Fire raged and earth shook and the tall flame rose up to the sky. Few of the warriors of the prince there dared to ride through the fire nor step across it.
