Ferr þú eigi svá         fjörðu breiða
né líðr yfir         langa vága,
þótt sær um þik         sægjum gangi;
þó skaltu brenna         á Berurjóðri.

Þú ferr eigi svá breiða fjörðu né líðr yfir langa vága, þótt sær gangi sægjum um þik; þó skaltu brenna á Berurjóðri.

You will never travel thus over broad firths nor sail across long bays, though the sea may surge in billows around you; yet you will burn at Berurjóðr.
