The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Verða svá rík sköp
að Reginn skyli
mitt banorð bera
því að þeir báðir bræðr
skulu brálliga
fara til Heljar heðan.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Fate is not so powerful that Regin will
find himself reporting my death,
since those two brothers are going, very quickly,
to set off for hell from here.’
)
