Flatir hurfu frá í braut
fjandr sviftir hans önd
og mistu nýtt nest

sveina fá stórmein,
er þeir kómu í kvalir heim;
kvað hann vera skylt það.

Flatir fjandr hurfu frá í braut, sviftir önd hans, og mistu nýtt nest nauðigir, sem guð bauð. Sátán bað sveina sína fá stórmein, er þeir kómu heim í kvalir; hann kvað það vera skylt.
