Fyrst mun ek líkja         eptir feðr mínum;
skal eigi mín dóttir,         nema skör höggviz,
nauðig gefin         neinum manni
guðvefs þella,         meðan Grímr lifir.

Fyrst ek mun líkja eptir feðr mínum; dóttir mín, {þella guðvefs}, skal eigi gefin neinum manni nauðig, meðan Grímr lifir, nema skör höggviz.

First I will follow the example of my father; my daughter, {the fir-tree of costly fabric} [WOMAN], shall not be given in marriage to any man against her will while Grímr is [I am] alive, unless my head is hewn off.
