Burt er Snarvendill,         ór slíðrum horfinn;
má ek eigi víg vekja,         veldr því Ölvir.
Hefna munda ek Harðar,         ef hann hér væri,
ok rjóða minn mæki         í manna blóði.

Snarvendill er burt, horfinn ór slíðrum; ek má eigi vekja víg, Ölvir veldr því. Ek munda hefna Harðar, ef hann væri hér, ok rjóða mæki minn í blóði manna.

Snarvendill is gone, disappeared from the scabbard; I cannot stir up battle, Ǫlvir causes that. I would avenge Hǫrðr, if it were here, and redden my sword in the blood of men.
