Giekk hjörviður Hlakkar
hríðar djarfr með karfa
hendi alt að hjöltum
handsax og benlaxa
— öld lofar öðling mildan
oft — en þrjú * á lofti.
Hjörviður, djarfr hríðar Hlakkar, giekk með karfa ... hendi alt að hjöltum, handsax og benlaxa, en þrjú * á lofti; öld lofar oft mildan öðling.
The sword-tree [WARRIOR], valiant in the storm of Hlǫkk <valkyrie> [BATTLE], went along the ship ... caught everything by the hilt, short-sword and wound-salmon [SWORDS], though three [were] aloft; people often praise the generous prince.
 þrjú *: þrjú eru 61
[All]: The Text, here and throughout this edn of the poem, is based on that of Ólafur Halldórsson in ÓT 1958-2000, III, xxxiii-xxxiv. Italics indicate poor legibility in the ms., even in Ólafur’s reading assisted by ultra-violet light; see Introduction. —  *: The ms. reading eru ‘are’ is hypermetrical and has been deleted here. The context requires a verb to be understood, however, and ‘[were]’ matches the pret. verbs in the stanza.
