Brann í brjósti hennar
bæði grimd og æði
fyld, er húsfrú vildi
forðaz slíku orði,
svá að af sorgum nýjum
sáran dauð með fári
— urðu illar gjörðir —
affíni rieð sínum.

Bæði grimd og fyld æði brann í brjósti hennar, er húsfrú vildi forðaz slíku orði, svá að af nýjum sorgum rieð sáran dauð affíni sínum með fári; illar gjörðir urðu.

Both ferocity and pent-up frenzy burned in her breast when the housewife wanted to save herself from such a rumour, so that because of renewed sorrows she plotted the bitter death of her son-in-law with wrath; wicked actions ensued.
