text and translation

The new edition is either unpublished or unavailable. The following is taken from an old edition (Skj where relevant):

Váru þá teknar þær skálir er Þórr var vanr at drekka ór, ok snerti Hrugnir ór hverri. En er hann gerðisk drukkinn þá skorti eigi stór orð. Hann lézk skyldu taka upp Valhǫll ok fœra í Jǫtunheima, en søkkva Ásgarði en drepa guð ǫll, nema Freyju ok Sif vill hann heim fœra með sér. En Freyja fór þá at skenkja honum, ok drekka lézk hann munu alt Ása ǫl. En er Ásum leiddisk ofrefli hans þá nefna þeir Þór. Því næst kom Þórr í hǫllina ok hafði uppi á lopti hamarinn ok var allreiðr ok spyrr hverr því ræðr er jǫtnar hundvísir skulu þar drekka, eða hverr seldi Hrungni grið at vera í Valhǫll eða hví Freyja skal skenkja honum sem at gildi Ása. Þá svarar Hrungnir ok sér ekki vinaraugum til Þórs, sagði at Óðinn bauð honum til drykkju ok hann var á hans griðum. Þá mælir Þórr at þess boðs skal Hrungnir iðrask áðr hann komi út. Hrungnir segir at Ásaþór er þat lítill frami at drepa hann vápnlausan; hitt er meiri hugraun ef hann þorir berjask við hann at landamæri á Grjótúnagǫrðum.
