Vak þú, Ölvir,         ef þú vilt víf sjá;
þú ert kossmildr         við konur harðla.
Heyrðu †hranarar† bíða þín         Hrauðungs meyjar;
hverf þú við,         ef þér hugr dugir.

Vak þú, Ölvir, ef þú vilt sjá víf; þú ert harðla kossmildr við konur. Heyrðu †hranarar† {meyjar Hrauðungs} bíða þín; hverf þú við, ef hugr dugir þér.

Wake up, Ǫlvir, if you want to see women; you are very generous with kisses for women. Listen … {the girls of Hrauðungr <giant>} [GIANTESSES] are waiting for you; turn to [them] if your courage serves you.
