Magni fýsir engi         við mik at deila,
þvíat mér var ungum         aldr skapaðr.
Ek hefi hjarta         hart í brjósti,
sízt mér í æsku         Óðinn framði.

Engi fýsir at deila magni við mik, þvíat aldr var skapaðr mér ungum. Ek hefi hart hjarta í brjósti, sízt Óðinn framði mér í æsku.

Nobody is eager to pit his strength against me, for a long life was fated to me as a young man. I have a firm heart in my breast, since Óðinn furthered it for me in my youth.
