Nú erum tveir, en trúra
trautt vættir mik sætta,
(elk með ǫnn ok bǫlvi
aldr) í Kolbeins valdi;
vita munuð ér at órum
(eirlaust) saman fleiri
(ruðuz hjaldrborin hildar
hjól) í vetr á jólum.

Skamr er, eldstøkkvir, okkarr
(af gekk sveit en teitan),
skeiðs, á Skjálgdalsheiði,
skutborðs, hali orðinn;
séka, lýs nær lausum
logreifandar veifa,
skalk hvessa þrek, þessum
(þat hlægir mik) bæjar.

Skjótt munk skǫkkum sôttum,
skjaldlinns, svarat vinna,
élsveigir dregr eigi
orðskæðr á þat græði;
þeim komi várr, eða verra
vera mun skollr, er ollu,
langa hríð með lýðum,
landrekstr at fjǫrgrandi.

Rauf við randa stýfi
(rétt innik þat) svinnan
alt, þvít oss hefr vélta,
Óðinn, þats hét góðu;
skaut, sás skrǫkmôl flýtir,
(skilk hvat gramr mun vilja)
Gautr unni sér sleitu,
slægr jarl við mér bægi.

Information about a text: poem, sequence of stanzas, or prose work

This page is used for different resources. For groups of stanzas such as poems, you will see the verse text and, where published, the translation of each stanza. These are also links to information about the individual stanzas.

For prose works you will see a list of the stanzas and fragments in that prose work, where relevant, providing links to the individual stanzas.

Where you have access to introduction(s) to the poem or prose work in the database, these will appear in the ‘introduction’ section.

The final section, ‘sources’ is a list of the manuscripts that contain the prose work, as well as manuscripts and prose works linked to stanzas and sections of a text.
