The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Nama Högna mær
of hug mæla;
hafa kvaz hon Helga
hylli skyldu.
Hirð eigi þú
Högna reiði
né illan hug
ættar þinnar;
þú skalt, mær ung,
að mér lifa;
ætt áttu, ingóða,
er ek sjámk.   (eddic or germanic)

(Hogni’s girl did not dissemble,
she said she wanted Helgi’s protection.
‘Don’t worry about Hogni’s anger,
nor the wrath of your kinsmen.
Young girl, you will live with me;
I’ve no fear, good lady, of your family.’
)
