Gefa mun ek hverjum         hjálm ok brynju
frækna drengja,         er fylgja mér.
Þat mun at líta,         sem logi brenni
skjöldungs liði         um skarar fjöllum.

Ek mun gefa hverjum frækna drengja, er fylgja mér, hjálm ok brynju. Þat mun at líta, sem logi brenni um {fjöllum skarar} liði skjöldungs.

I shall give to each of the brave warriors who follow me a helmet and a byrnie. That will look as if a flame were burning around {the mountains of hair} [HEADS] of the prince’s host.
