text and translation

The new edition is either unpublished or unavailable.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

Hjoggum vér með hjǫrvi.
Heðins kvánar varð auðit,
þás Helsingja heimtum
til heimsala Óðins;
lǫgðum upp í Ívu,
oddr náði þá bíta,
ǫll vas unda gjalfri
ô sú roðin heitu;
grenjaði brandr við brynjur,
bensíldr klufu skildi.
