Anon Brúðv 18VII/4 — mun ‘it will’

‘Vingun muna vera leingr
— veld eg því eigi að heldr —
og eyðaz ástúð,
okkr svá mun fara loks,
nema eina auð-Rán
aðra látir nú í stað,
hristir þá er hafið fest,
hnossa, en munið oss.

‘Vingun muna vera leingr og ástúð eyðaz; eg veld því eigi að heldr; loks mun okkr svá fara, nema látir eina aðra auð-Rán nú í stað, þá er hafið fest, hristir hnossa, en munið oss.

‘The friendship will not last [any] longer and affection will come to nothing; I do not cause it either; in the end it will turn out like that for us, unless you forsake that one other gold-Rán <goddess> [WOMAN] here and now, to whom you have betrothed yourself, shaker of treasures [GENEROUS MAN], and remember us [me].
