Hvat efldi þik austan hingat
feiknafullan ok fláráðan?
Muntu hvarvetna herja vilja,
er þú Álfi máttir aldrspell gera.
Hvat efldi þik austan hingat, feiknafullan ok fláráðan? Muntu vilja herja hvarvetna, er þú máttir gera Álfi aldrspell.
What aided you [coming] here from the east, one full of portents and deceits? You must want to harry everywhere, since you were able to cause life-damage to Álfr.
 hvat ‘what’: Ms. 344a’s reading makes better sense in the light of Oddr’s reply to this question, though the variant hverr ‘who’ (sg.) is also possible and was preferred by Edd. Min. Hverir ‘who’ (pl.) is not possible because the verb efldi ‘aided’ is sg. Ms. 7’s [eða] hverr eggjaði þik ‘who urged you on’ makes good sense but is unmetrical.
