Dregz þú nú, Dragvendill,         við krás arnar;
mætir þú meingöldrum;         máttir þú eigi bíta.
Mik þess eigi varði,         at hrøkkva mundi
eggjar eitrherðar,         þótt Óðinn deyfði.

Þú dregz nú, Dragvendill, við {krás arnar}; þú mætir meingöldrum; þú máttir eigi bíta. Mik varði þess eigi, at eitrherðar eggjar mundi hrøkkva, þótt Óðinn deyfði.

You are drawn now, Dragvendill <sword>, for {the delicacies of the eagle} [CORPSES]; you meet harmful spells; you are unable to bite. It did not occur to me that poison-hardened edges would give way, although Óðinn blunted [them].
