Hafa vildak þat,         er ek hafða í gær;
        vittu, hvat þat var:
lýða lemill,
        orða tefill,
        ok orða upphefill.
Heiðrekr konungr,         hyggðu at gátu.

Vildak hafa þat, er ek hafða í gær; vittu, hvat þat var: lemill lýða, tefill orða, ok upphefill orða. Heiðrekr konungr, hyggðu at gátu.

I would wish to have what I had yesterday; find out what that was: crippler of people, hinderer of words, and instigator of words. King Heiðrekr, think about the riddle.
