Hjálmþér ek heiti;
hverr spyrr at því,
seggr inn svartleiti
á dýri?
Drepa skulum drengi,
en dýrgripi eignaz,
fúll falsari,
ella flý í brott.


I am called Hjálmþér; who asks about it, swarthy man on {the sea-beast}? [SHIP] We shall kill the fellows, foul imposter, and get the treasures or [else] you must flee.

context: Hjálmþér responds immediately to Tóki’s challenge with this stanza.
