Yðr munu dauðar         dísir allar;
heill kveð ek horfna         frá Hálfsrekkum.
Dreymði mik í morgin,         at megir várir
efri yrði,         hvar er vér mættuz.

Allar dísir munu yðr dauðar; ek kveð heill horfna frá Hálfsrekkum. Dreymði mik í morgin, at megir várir yrði efri, hvar er vér mættuz.

For you, all dísir will be dead; I say luck has deserted Hálfr’s champions. I dreamed this morning that our [my] sons would prevail, wherever we should meet.
