Hvat er þat manna,         er mér í móti ferr
        ok skríðr sem vargr af viði?
Æðru skaltu mæla,
        ef þú undan kemz
þrysvar fyr Þrumu;         því tel ek þik ósnjallan.

Hvat er þat manna, er ferr í móti mér ok skríðr sem vargr af viði? Skaltu mæla æðru, ef þú kemz undan þrysvar fyr Þrumu; því tel ek þik ósnjallan.

What kind of man is that, who comes towards me and creeps like a wolf from the wood? You will have to speak words of fear, if you escape three times before Þruma; for this reason I account you cowardly.
