Hafs létum vér hesta
hlýr stinn á brim renna,
meðan á bjartar brynjur
blóði dreif um síðir.
Ylgr gein aldri mönnum
eyragrán of svíra
— harð-meldri fám vér heiða
Hveðnu — blóði roðna.

Vér létum stinn hlýr {hesta hafs} renna á brim, meðan blóði dreif um síðir á bjartar brynjur. Eyragrán ylgr gein aldri of svíra mönnum, roðna blóði; vér fám {heiða harð-meldri Hveðnu}.

We made the sturdy prows {of the horses of the sea} [SHIPS] advance on the surf while blood at last sprayed onto bright corslets. The grey-eared she-wolf never gaped over necks of [our] men, reddened with blood; we obtain {the gleaming hard flour of Hveðna <giantess>} [GOLD].
