Sigurðr vá at ormi,         en þat síðan mun
engum fyrnaz,         meðan öld lifir.
En hlýri þinn         hvárki þorði
eld at ríða         né yfir stíga.

Sigurðr vá at ormi, en þat mun síðan fyrnaz engum, meðan öld lifir. En hlýri þinn þorði hvárki at ríða eld né stíga yfir.

Sigurðr slew the dragon, and that will afterwards be forgotten by no one while humankind lives. But your brother neither dared to ride through the fire nor step across it.
