Ægðu eigi mér,         Oddr á Jaðri,
eldiskíðu,         þótt ýmist geipum.
Saga mun sannaz,         sú er segir völva;
öll veit hon ýta         ørlög fyrir.

Ægðu eigi mér, Oddr á Jaðri, eldiskíðu, þótt geipum ýmist. Saga, sú er völva segir, mun sannaz; hon veit fyrir öll ørlög ýta.

Do not threaten me, Oddr from Jæren, with a firestick, though we [I] babble of this and that. That tale the prophetess tells will be proven true; she foretells all destinies of men.
