Óört mæli ek nú
en hon eigi mun
of óra sök
aldri týna;
hana munu hefja
hávar bárur
til Jónakrs
óðaltorfu.
eru ívarúðum
Jónakrs sonum;
mun hon Svanhildi
senda af landi,
sína mey
ok Sigurðar.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Slowly I speak now, but she will never
yield up her life at my urging;
her the high waves will carry
over to Ionakr’s ancestral land.
‘They’ll be under the protection of Ionakr’s sons;
she’ll send Svanhild from that land,
her daughter and Sigurd’s.
