ÞKolb Eirdr 8I/7 — hǫll ‘the hall’

Þar vas hjalmaðs herjar
Hropts við dreyrgar toptir

Orð fekk gótt, es gerði
grams vǫrn blôum hjǫrvi
(hǫll bilar hára fjalla,)
Hyrningr (áðr þat fyrnisk).

Þar vas … hjalmaðs herjar … við dreyrgar toptir Hropts … Hyrningr, es gerði vǫrn grams blôum hjǫrvi, fekk gótt orð; hǫll hára fjalla bilar, áðr þat fyrnisk.
