Gakk þú frá brunni         — glettzt lítt* við mik,
þræll herfiligr —         þíns innis til.
Mun ek senda þér         sveiðanda spjót,
þat er gyrja mun         granir þínar.

Gakk þú frá brunni til innis þíns; glettzt lítt* við mik, herfiligr þræll. Ek mun senda þér sveiðanda spjót, þat er mun gyrja granir þínar.

Go [away] from the spring to your abode; provoke me little, wretched scoundrel. I shall send you a burning spear, which will stain your whiskers.
