Þegi þú, heimdregi heitinn!
Hvat er þik, vesallátan?
Hefir þú aldrigi unnit,
þess er ek mega þrotna.
Feittira sverð- né sólar
sækitík at -leiki;
gafta þú hafnar hesti
— hvat rækir þik? — drykkju.

Þegi þú, heimdregi heitinn! Hvat er þik, vesallátan? Þú hefir aldrigi unnit, þess er ek mega þrotna. Feittira né {sækitík sólar} at {sverðleiki}; þú gafta drykkju {hesti hafnar}; hvat rækir þik?

Be silent, you, [rightly] called a stay-at-home! What concern is it of yours, shabby wretch? You have never achieved anything in which I may lag behind. You did not fatten {the chasing-bitch of the sun} [WOLF] in {sword-play} [BATTLE]; you did not give a drink {to the horse of the harbour} [SHIP]; what do you care?
