Mundi Ormr         ófrýnn vera,
ef hann á kvöl þessa         kynni at líta
ok grimmliga         gjalda þursi
várar viðfarar         víst, ef hann næði.

Ormr mundi vera ófrýnn, ef hann kynni at líta á þessa kvöl ok víst gjalda þursi viðfarar várar grimmliga, ef hann næði.

Ormr would be displeased if he could look upon this torment and certainly pay back the giant terribly for our [my] treatment, if he could.
