Mun ek þær gjafir
þiggja eigi,
nema frægr hafi
fjörsótt tekit.

 

I will not accept those gifts, unless you, famous one, have contracted a life-threatening illness.

context: Following King Hringr’s extraordinarily generous offer in Frið 40, Friðþjófr responds with this qualified acceptance.

notes: The stanza is in both A and B recension mss, with the exception of 109a IIˣ. The metre is fornyrðislag. — [3]: The reading of Holm10 VI has been preferred here to that of 510, which is unmetrical unless frægr is desyllabified to frægur.
