Hun fyrir heimsku sína
hrygðiz viðr og iðraz
þegar, en þorði eigi

Gjörði hun öllum orðum
angrþrútin við ganga;
það mann tíðum meinar;
morð er ór vígi orðið.

Hun hrygðiz viðr fyrir heimsku sína og iðraz þegar, en þorði eigi að sæta þrætu máls. Angrþrútin gjörði hun ganga við öllum orðum; það meinar mann tíðum; ór vígi er morð orðið.
