Hverr er sá,         kominn ór Manheimum,
ungr at aldri,         oss at kveðja?
Berr þú, inn ungi,         ormfrán augu;
mun ek við brögðum         búaz mega.

Hverr er sá, kominn ór Manheimum, ungr at aldri, at kveðja oss? Þú, inn ungi, berr ormfrán augu; ek mun mega búaz við brögðum.

Who is he, come from Manheimar, young in age, to greet us [me]? You, young one, have snake-flashing eyes; I will be able to prepare myself for tricks.
