Brátt nam byskup hitta
brúðr, er sorgin knúði,
satt og segir til vátta,
sár, og flóar í tárum:
‘Mettu, hvie mikil er hætta,
mann, ef eg fæ* annan,
en fastúðigr festi
formaðr konu aðra.’

Brúðr, er sár sorgin knúði, nam brátt hitta byskup og segir satt til vátta og flóar í tárum: ‘Mettu, hvie mikil hætta er, ef eg fæ* annan mann, en fastúðigr formaðr festi aðra konu.’

The woman, whom the bitter sorrow oppressed, at once sought a bishop and tells the truth about the witnesses and is flowing with tears: ‘Assess how great the danger is if I should take another husband, and the firm-minded previous man should be engaged to another woman.’
