The new edition is either unpublished or unavailable. The following text is from the old edition (normally Skj):

Bjarki átti hugarkorn hart,
herlið feldi Stǫrkuðr mart,
(ekki var hann í hvílðum hœgr),
Hrómundr þótti garpr ok slœgr;
ókat þeim né einn á bug,
Eljárnir var trúr at hug,
fílinn gat hann í fylking sótt,
fullstrǫng hefr sú mannraun þótt.
