Nú em ek út á eyri
alvangs búinn ganga
(happs unni goð greppi
gǫrt) með tognum hjǫrvi;
hnakk skalk Helgu lokka
(haus vink frá bol lausan
lóks) með ljósum mæki
ljúfs velgs í tvau kljúfa.

(Nu er jeg rede til med dragen klinge at gå ud på altingsøren; unde gud skjalden fuld sejr; jeg skal kløve itu Helgas elskers hoved med det strålende sværd; jeg hugger den nederdrægtiges hoved fra kroppen.)
