The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Látum son fara
feðr ísinni!
Skalat úlf ala
ungan lengi.
Hveim verðr hölða
hefnd léttari
síðan til sátta
að sonr lifi.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Let’s send the son the same way as the father!*
Don’t nurture for long the young wolf;
would vengeance come easier to any man—
later making recompense—than to a son if still alive?’
)
