Kóðuz fjallbúar
flytja mundu
oss ór eyju,
nema út* færim.
Þótti ei rekkum
rómr at heyra
hagligr, er var
hraunskjöldunga.

 

{The mountain dwellers} [GIANTS] said they would move us off the island, unless we went away. The voice that belonged to {the rock-princes} [GIANTS] did not seem to the men pleasant to hear.

notes: There is no close correspondence between this stanza and the prose saga, aside from the common theme of the general hostility between the giants and Oddr’s party during the latter’s stay on the unnamed island.
