The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page. It is included for reference only. Do not refer to this site when using this text but rather consult the original edition (Skj where relevant).

Borg lét brennuvarga
bjórstofnandi klofna
Sónar sex ok einum
(sák deili þess) heila;
bergstjóra gleðr bôru
blikstríðanda síðan
hregg, en hafnak muggu
heldr, síts Kolbein feldum.

(skjalden (jeg) lod syv indebrændingsmænds hoveder kløves; jeg så det tydeligt nok; kampen (el. sindets?) glæder (glædes) siden guldbryderen (mig), og jeg vrager snarest sørgmodigheden, siden jeg fældede Kolbein.)
