Nú fýsir mik,         fóstri, at vitja
framgenginna         frænda minna.
Auð mundu þeir         eiga nógan;
þann skal ek öðlaz,         nema ek áðr förumz.

Nú fýsir mik, fóstri, at vitja framgenginna frænda minna. Þeir mundu eiga nógan auð; ek skal öðlaz þann, nema ek förumz áðr.

Now I am eager, foster-father, to visit my deceased kinsmen. They must own abundant wealth; I shall inherit it, unless I die first.
