The new edition is either unpublished or unavailable. The following is taken from an old edition (Skj where relevant):
Ok sem leið at jólum, gørðusk menn þar ókátir. Bǫðvarr spurði Hǫtt hverju þat sætti; hann sagði honum at dýr eitt hafi komit tvá vetr í samt, mikit ok ógurligt.
‘Ok hefr vængi á bakinu ok flýgr jafnan. Tvau haust hefr þat nú hingat vitjat ok gǫrt mikinn skaða. Á bíta ekki vápn, en kappar konungs koma heim, þeir sem eru einna mestir.’
