‘Hvat hafim, Sjǫfn, at sitja,
seims’ (mælti þat) ‘heima?’
(elda njótr við ítra
ulfvíns konu sína).
‘Eigum oss at lægja,
einn réttr þvíat goð beinir,
— reyndrs, s stríð standask
stórfarnaði órum.’

 

What do we gain, {Sjǫfn of gold}, [WOMAN] by staying at home?’; {the user {of the fires {of wolf-wine}}} [BLOOD > SWORDS > WARRIOR] said that to his splendid wife. ‘We must humble ourselves because the one true God furthers our fortune; that one is well-proven who can endure great distresses.’
