Heimsk ertu, Hervör,
hugar eigandi,
er þú at augum
í eld hrapar.
Heldr vil ek selja þér
sverð ór haugi,
mær in unga;
mákat ek þér synja.

 

You are foolish, Hervǫr, [but] in possession of courage, since you rush into the fire with your eyes open. I will rather give you the sword from the mound, young woman; I cannot refuse you.

notes: [1-2]: Kock (NN §2375) draws a contrast between these lines and Hamð 27/1-2 (NK 273): hug hefðir þú, Hamðir, | ef þu hefðir hyggiandi ‘you would have had courage, Hamðir, if you had wisdom’.
