Hvert er þat bákn,         er í bjargi sitr
        ok sér of konungs …?
Enga veit ek þér
        ámátligri
        alna fyrir jörð ofan.

Hvert bákn er þat, er sitr í bjargi ok sér of … konungs? Ek veit enga alna ámátligri þér fyrir ofan jörð.

Who is that monster who sits on the rock and looks down on the king’s …? I know no female born more loathsome than you on the face of the earth.
