Ferr þú eigi svá
fjörðu breiða
líðr yfir
langa vága,
þótt sær um þik
sægjum gangi;
þó skaltu brenna
á Berurjóðri.

 

You will never travel thus over broad firths nor sail across long bays, though the sea may surge in billows around you; yet you will burn at Berurjóðr.

context: See Introduction above.

notes: Lines 5-6 are absent from the version of 7. — A version of this stanza may be the inspiration for OStór 1 and ch. 5 of the prose text of OStór, in which there is a similar exchange between a scornful protagonist and a woman who prophesies that the hero will meet his fate on a Norwegian estate in Nordmøre. Cf. OStór 1, Notes to [All] and l. 2 for a discussion of possible verbal echoes.
