Nam hann sér Högna
hvetja að rúnum:
Seggi vil ek alla
ísal ganga,
þína með mínum
nú er þörf mikil—
vita ef meini
morðför konu
unz af méli
enn mein komi,
þá látum því
þarfar ráða.   (eddic or germanic)

(Then he urged Hogni to offer secret counsel:
‘I want all the men to go into the hall,
yours and mine together—for now there’s great need—,
to see if we can stop the woman’s death-journey,
else more harm will come of it;
so let us then devise what’s necessary.’
)
