The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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).

Mættu þeir tiggja
ítúnhliði,
sögðu stríðlega
stilli kvómu.
Úti stóð Höðbroddr
hjálmi faldinn,
hugði hann jóreið
ættar sinnar:
Hví er hermðar litr
á Hniflungum?   (eddic or germanic)

(They met the excellent prince at the courtyard-door,
they said with excitement that the lord had come;
Hodbrodd stepped forward, wearing his helmet,
he pondered his kinsmen riding towards him:
‘Why do the Niflungs look so troubled?’
)
