Anon Sól 31VII/4 — mun ‘it shall’

Úlfum líkir        þykkja allir þeir,
        sem eiga hverfan hug;
svá mun gefaz,        þeim er ganga skal
        þær inar glæddu götur.

Allir þeir, sem eiga hverfan hug, þykkja líkir úlfum; svá mun gefaz, þeim er skal ganga þær inar glæddu götur.

All those who have a changeable heart seem like wolves; it shall turn out thus for the one who has to tread the glowing-hot paths.
