Þér ann ek serk inn síða
ok saumaðan hvergi
við hug ofinn heilan
ór hársíma gránu.
Mun eigi ben blæða
né bíta þik eggjar
í heilagri hjúpu;
var hon goðum signuð.

Ek ann þér inn síða serk, ofinn við heilan hug ór gránu hársíma ok hvergi saumaðan. Ben mun eigi blæða né eggjar bíta þik í heilagri hjúpu; var hon signuð goðum.

I am giving you the long shirt, devotedly woven out of grey hair-thread, and nowhere sewn. A wound will not bleed, nor sword-edges cut you in that holy tunic: it was consecrated to the gods.
