Hier kom orð, það heyrði
hústrú fríð um síðir;
sig skildi þá sældar
saklaus vera sprakki.
Ráðtæki var ríkrar
raungrætiligt sætu;
kunni hun mág sinn manna
mest álygi vestrar.

Orð kom hier, það fríð hústrú heyrði um síðir; sprakki sældar skildi sig þá vera saklaus. Ráðtæki ríkrar sætu var raungrætiligt; hun kunni mág sinn mest manna vestrar álygi.

The rumour came here, which the fair housewife finally heard; the woman of prosperity then knew herself to be innocent. The remedy of the powerful lady was really deplorable; she blamed her son-in-law most of all men for the worst slander.
