Hervör, dóttir,         hví kallar svá?
Full feiknstafa         ferr þú þér at illu.
Ær ertu orðin         ok örvita;
villhyggjandi,         vekr dauða menn.

Hervör, dóttir, hví kallar svá? Full feiknstafa ferr þú illu at þér. Ertu orðin ær ok örvita; villhyggjandi, vekr dauða menn.

Hervǫr, daughter, why do you call thus? Full of curses, you carry on to your detriment. You have become mad and unhinged; reasoning astray, you wake dead men.
