Ek vígi svá         virða dauða,
at þér skuluð         allir liggja
dauðir með draugum,         í dys fúnir.
Sel mér, Angantýr,         út ór haugi
hlífum hættan,         Hjálmars bana.

Ek vígi dauða virða svá, at þér skuluð allir liggja dauðir með draugum, fúnir í dys. Sel mér, Angantýr, út ór haugi, {bana Hjálmars}, hættan hlífum.

I curse dead noblemen, so that you will all lie dead with the revenants, rotten in the cairn. Give me, Angantýr, out from the mound, {the slayer of Hjálmarr} [= Tyrfingr], dangerous to shields.
