Gakk þú framar hóti,         fyrr en þú á seyði dragir
þenna þjóðkonung;         þú ert flagð it hraustasta.
Ettu fram járnhrömmum,         ef þú afli treystir,
drós in dulrífa,         en ek mun dvergasmíði.

Gakk þú hóti framar, fyrr en þú dragir þenna þjóðkonung á seyði; þú ert it hraustasta flagð. Ettu járnhrömmum fram, ef þú treystir afli, in dulrífa drós, en ek mun {dvergasmíði}.

Advance a bit further before you drag this mighty king onto the fire; you are the boldest ogress. Unleash your iron claws, if you trust in your strength, wilful woman, and I will [unleash] my {dwarfs’ work} [SWORD].
