Verst hyggjum því,
vándr munk heitinn,
Sigurðr, með seggjum
að sógöru;
vilda ek eigi
vélum beita
jöfra brúði
er ek æðsta veitk.
Þú munt hvíla,
hers oddviti,
mærr hjá meyju
sem þín móðir sé;
því mun uppi
meðan öld lifir,
þjóðar þengill,
þitt nafn vera.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘This is the worst I can imagine, I, Sigurd, will be reviled
by men for this; I should not wish
to entrap with cunning the noble bride
whom I know to be the best.
You’ll sleep, leader of the army,
splendid man, with the girl, as if she were your mother;
and so, prince of the people, as long as men survive,
your name will be uppermost.)
