Skúa tvá,         er mér Skafnörtungr gaf,
        þvengjum er hann þá nam.
Ills manns
        kveð ek aldri verða
        grandalausar gjafir.

Skúa tvá, er Skafnörtungr gaf mér, er hann nam þá þvengjum. Ek kveð gjafir ills manns verða aldri grandalausar.

The two shoes, which Skafnǫrtungr gave me, he took the laces from them. I say the gifts of an evil man are never without harm.
