Hlítt hefir fylkir         í förum úti
mínum ráðum         mörgu sinni.
Nú kveð ek öngu,         er ek mæli,
hlýða vilja,         sízt hingat kómum.

Fylkir hefir mörgu sinni hlítt ráðum mínum í förum úti. Nú kveð ek hlýða vilja öngu, er ek mæli, sízt kómum hingat.

The prince has many times trusted my advice while on journeys out at sea. Now I declare [him] unwilling to listen to anything I say since we have come here.

Mss: 2845(36r) (Hálf)

Editions: Skj: Anonyme digte og vers [XIII], E. 6. Vers af Fornaldarsagaer: Af Hálfssaga VI 15: AII, 261, BII, 281, Skald II, 147; Hálf 1864, 21, Hálf 1909, 106, FSGJ 2, 114, Hálf 1981, 182-3; Edd. Min. 35.

Context: This stanza is introduced by the words: Innsteinn kvað ‘Innsteinn said’.

Notes: [8] hingat ‘here’: The line is málaháttr and hypermetrical but can be regularised by adopting the alternative form higat, as is done in Edd. Min., Skj B and Skald.
