Komi hér seggir sex;         seg þú mér nöfn þeirra
öll óbundin;         ek mun þér sýna.
Getr þú ei ráðit,         svá at mér rétt þikki,
þá skulu þik hundar         í hel gnaga,
en sál þín         sökkvi í víti.

Sex seggir komi hér; seg þú mér nöfn þeirra öll óbundin; ek mun sýna þér. Getr þú ei ráðit, svá at mér þikki rétt, þá skulu hundar gnaga þik í hel, en sál þín sökkvi í víti.

Let six warriors come here; tell me all their names without concealment; I will show [them] to you. If you cannot guess, so that it seems correct to me, then let dogs gnaw you to death and your soul sink to punishment.
