Undr ok argskap         ok alla bleyði!
En engi vissi         þín þau orð
útan þú einn,         ill vættr ok örm.

Undr ok argskap ok alla bleyði! En engi vissi þau orð þín útan þú einn, ill ok örm vættr.

Shame and depravity and all cowardice! But no one knew those words of yours except you alone, evil and wretched creature.
