Eigi þarftu oss at eggja;         eiga mér sjaldan
fyrðar flugtrauðir         frýja stórhöggva.
Bít þú nú, Dragvendill,         eða brotna ella;
horfin* er okkr heill báðum,         ef þú bilar sinn þriðja.

Þarftu eigi at eggja oss; sjaldan eiga flugtrauðir fyrðar frýja mér stórhöggva. Bít þú nú, Dragvendill, eða ella brotna; heill er horfin* okkr báðum, ef þú bilar þriðja sinn.

You do not need to egg us [me] on; seldom do men averse to flight call into question my dealing in heavy blows. Bite now, Dragvendill, or else break apart; luck has turned away from us both, if you fail a third time.
