Þann skal hring um höggva,
er Hálfdanar átti,
áðr oss tapi ægir,
auðigr faðir, rauðan.
Sjá skal gull á gestum,
ef vér gistingar þurfum
— þat dugir rausnarrekkum —
í Ránar sal miðjum.

Skal um höggva þann rauðan hring, er auðigr faðir Hálfdanar átti, áðr ægir tapi oss. Gull skal sjá á gestum, ef vér þurfum gistingar í miðjum sal Ránar; þat dugir rausnarrekkum.

That red-gold ring, which the wealthy father of Hálfdan owned, must be cut up, before the sea can destroy us. Gold must be visible on guests, if we need accommodation in the middle of Rán’s <sea-goddess’s> hall; that is fitting for men of splendour.
