Þurfum ei, drengir,
dauða at kvíða!
Veri þjóðglaðir,
þegnar mínir!
Þat mun verða,
ef vitu draumar,
at ek eiga mun
Ingibjörgu.

 

Comrades, we do not need to be afraid of death! Be really happy, my retainers! It will come about, if dreams are indicative, that I will marry Ingibjǫrg.

context: As for Frið 18. The two stanzas are presented in reverse order in recension B mss.

notes: This stanza is in regular fornyrðislag. There is a good deal of minor variation in the ms. paradosis for this stanza, and it is shortened in 1006ˣ and 173ˣ, which omit ll. 1-2 and shorten l. 5.
