Oddr sveigði álm,         ör fló af streng,
Jólfs smíði beit         Álf í gegnum.
Dugðu svá blót,         at yfir honum hlakka
bæði hrafnar         ok hrægjóðar.

Oddr sveigði álm, ör fló af streng, smíði Jólfs beit í gegnum Álf. Blót dugðu svá, at bæði hrafnar ok hrægjóðar hlakka yfir honum.

Oddr bent the bow, the arrow flew from the string, Jólfr’s handiwork bit right through Álfr. The sacrifices lent help to the extent that both ravens and carrion-ospreys exult over him.
