Manni gef ek hverjum
margt at þiggja,
annat æðra,
en hann á ráði.
Mey gef ek hverjum
manni at þiggja;
men spenni ek hverri
meyju at hálsi.

 

I will give much to every man to receive, other, better than he could acquire; I will give a girl to every man to receive, I will clasp a necklace around the neck of each girl.

context: The stanza follows directly on from the previous one.

notes: [7-8]: Ms. 203ˣ has the words men ‘necklace’ and meyju ‘girl’ reversed (which produces the same meaning), but R715ˣ’s garbled version suggests the order presented here, which has the additional advantages of being metrically better and supported by the pattern of the previous two lines. The emendation is also made by Skj B, Skald, FSGJ and Edd. Min.
