Dró djarfliga dáðrakkr Þórr
orm eitrfán upp at borði
Hamri kníði háfjall skarar
ofljótt ofan úlfs hnitbróður.
Hreingálkn hrutu, en hölkn þutu,
fór in forna fold öll saman
Søkðiz síðan sá fiskr í mar.
Then very bravely Thor, the courageous one,
pulled the gleaming serpent up on board.
With his hammer he struck the head
violently, from above, of the wolf’s hideous brother.
The sea-wolf shrieked and the underwater rocks re-echoed,
all the ancient earth was collapsing…
Then the fish sank into the sea.
