The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page. It is included for reference only. Do not refer to this site when using this text but rather consult the original edition (Skj where relevant).

Sá hon þar vaða
þunga strauma
menn meinsvara
ok morðvarga
ok þannz annars glepr
eyrarúnu;
þar saug Níðhöggr
nái framgengna,
sleit vargr vera;
vituðérenn, eðahvað?   (eddic or germanic)

(There she saw wading in turbid streams
false-oath swearers and murderers,
and the seducer of another man’s close confidante;
there Nidhogg sucks the corpses of the dead—
a wolf tears at men—do you want to know more: and what?)
