Knátti eðr við illan
Jǫrmunrekkr at vakna
með dreyrfáar dróttir
draum í sverða flaumi;
rósta varð í ranni
Randvés hǫfuðniðja,
þás hrafnbláir hefnðu
harma Erps of barmar.

(Fremdeles [ses, at] vågnede Jörmunrekk som af en ond dröm tilligemed de blodbestænkte skarer i sværdtummelen; der opstod kamp i Randves faders hus, dengang da Erps ravnsorte brødre hævnede deres sorg.)
