En skinnbjarta skortir
— skap kannask mér svanna —
— dýrs hon hætt at hváru —
hálmmein Njǫrun steina.

En {skinnbjarta Njǫrun steina} skortir {hálmmein}; skap svanna kannask mér; hon [e]s at hváru hætt dýr.

But {the bright-skinned Njǫrun <goddess> of stones} [WOMAN] lacks {straw-harm} [BLADE]; the temperament of the woman is known to me; she is in any case a dangerous animal.
