Lét ek fyrstan         Frey ok Óðin,
blinda báða,         á bál fara.
Urðu æsir         undan at flýja,
hvar er í flokki         fundizk höfðum.

Ek lét Frey fyrstan ok Óðin, báða blinda, fara á bál. Æsir urðu at flýja undan, hvar er höfðum fundizk í flokki.

I caused Freyr first and [then] Óðinn, both blind, to proceed to the pyre. The gods were forced to flee away, wherever we had encountered each other in company.
