Hafið ofrhuga ærinn
ok áræði bæði;
þess mundi þá þurfa,
at þrá mikit fylgði.
Bera munuð mik fyr bragna
beinlausan fram verða;
þó á* ek hönd til hefnda,
at ek hváriga nýta.

Hafið bæði ærinn ofrhuga ok áræði; þess mundi þá þurfa, at mikit þrá fylgði. Munuð verða bera mik beinlausan fram fyr bragna; þó á* ek hönd til hefnda, at ek nýta hváriga.

You have both sufficient foolhardiness and daring; this would then be needed, that great perseverance should accompany [them]. You will have to carry me, boneless, before the men; I’ll have a hand in the pursuit of vengeance, even though I use neither of them.
