Hervör ek heiti         Hundingja dóttir;
minn föður ef röskvan         þú lítir ríku*liga,
líf þitt án dvöl         þú láta mundir,
ef þú værir         gegn döglingi.

Ek heiti Hervör, dóttir Hundingja; ef þú lítir röskvan föður minn ríku*liga, mundir þú láta líf þitt án dvöl, ef þú værir gegn döglingi.

I am called Hervǫr, daughter of Hundingi; if you look at my bold father arrogantly, you would lose your life without delay, if you were to be against the prince.
