Vammlausa skaltu, vísi,
ef viltu griðum þyrma,
— heim höfum hilmi sóttan —
heðan mik fara láta.

 

Leader, you must let me go away unblemished, if you wish to keep to the terms of the safe-conduct; I have visited the ruler.

context: Kráka-Áslaug resists Ragnarr’s advances, pointing out that he should keep to the terms of the safe-conduct she had been granted in visiting him.

notes: See Notes to Ragn 3a, above, on the prose introduction to that half-stanza in 1824b and on what appears in 147 to be the prose introduction to the present half-stanza.
