Hirði ek eigi,         þótt heitir þú,
fárgjarnt höfuð,         Freys reiði mér.
Veit ek í eldi         ásu brenna;
tröll eigi þik;         trúi ek guði einum.

Ek hirði eigi, þótt þú, fárgjarnt höfuð, heitir mér reiði Freys. Ek veit ásu brenna í eldi; tröll eigi þik; ek trúi guði einum.

I do not care though you, evil-inclined person, call down Freyr’s wrath upon me. I know the gods are burning in the fire; may trolls have you; I believe in one god.
