Svá skal ek þjarma         þér at brjósti,
at hjarta þitt         höggormar gnagi,
en eyru þín         aldrigi heyri,
ok augu þín         úthverf snúiz,
nema þú Bósa         björg um veitir
ok honum Herrauð         heipt upp gefir.

Ek skal þjarma þér svá at brjósti, at höggormar gnagi hjarta þitt, en eyru þín heyri aldrigi, ok augu þín snúiz úthverf, nema þú um veitir Bósa björg ok gefir honum Herrauð upp heipt.

I shall so oppress your breast as though adders are gnawing at your heart, and your ears shall never hear [again], and your eyes shall turn outwards, unless you grant Bósi freedom and forego your hatred towards Herrauðr.
