Geirhildr, getta,         gott er öl þetta,
ef því annmarkar         öngvir fylgja.
Ek sé hanga         á háum gálga
son þinn, kona,         seldan Óðni.

Geirhildr, getta, þetta öl er gott, ef öngvir annmarkar fylgja því. Ek sé son þinn, kona, hanga á háum gálga, seldan Óðni.

Geirhildr, girl, this ale is good, if there are no faults connected with it. I see your son, woman, hanging on the high gallows, handed over to Óðinn.
