Hvat er þér, Hjálmarr?         Hefr þú lit brugðit.
Þik kveð ek mæða         margar undir.
Hjálmr er þinn höggvinn,         en á hlið brynja;
nú kveð ek fjörvi         um farit þínu.

Hvat er þér, Hjálmarr? Þú hefr brugðit lit. Ek kveð margar undir mæða þik. Hjálmr þinn er höggvinn, en brynja á hlið; nú kveð ek fjörvi þínu um farit.

What is the matter with you, Hjálmarr? You have changed colour. I say many wounds are exhausting you. Your helmet is shattered, and your mail-coat has a rent; now I say that your life has come to an end.
