Ek mun bregða
því að ek brúðar á
flest um ráð sem faðir;
varka ek heima
þá er þér heitið var
að sá einn er gjöfer með goðum.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘I shall break them, since I’ve most authority
over the bride as her father;
I wasn’t at home when she was promised to you,
the only one among the gods who can give this gift.’
)
