Ungr var ek heima
ok öllu skipaði
skatna liði
at skapi mínu.
Gerði þat hugnaz
alt harla vel
fylki vísum
ok velbornum sveinum.

 

When young, I was at home and marshalled all the host of men according to my mind. All that pleased the wise leader and the well-born youths very well.

context: Hjálmþér assures Hundingi that he was used to having his way because of the respect he commanded back home.
