Þess hlægjumk ek,         at hefir fengna
Freys reiði þú,         fári blandna.
Hjálpi æsir         ok ásynjur,
görvöll regin,         gyðjum sínum!

Ek hlægjumk þess, at þú hefir fengna reiði Freys, blandna fári. Æsir ok ásynjur, görvöll regin, hjálpi gyðjum sínum!

I am moved to laughter at this, that you have incurred Freyr’s wrath, mixed with evil. May gods and goddesses, all divine powers, help their priestesses!
