context: This stanza follows straight on from HjǪ 4, and is introduced with hann kvað ‘he said’.
notes: This stanza, like HjǪ 4, is in ljóðaháttr, but it contains an extra line (l. 7) which is loosely connected to the rest of the stanza and is present in all mss. It is omitted by many eds, including Skj B (but not Skj A), Skald and FSGJ.
