Hér hafa sex, þeirs sævask
sútlaust, bana úti
svip-njǫrðungar, sverðum,
sárteins á brústeinum;
hygg at halfir liggi
heptendr laga eptir,
eggskeindar létk undir
óbíðingum svíða.

Barka fúr með fleiri
fetla stígs at vígi,
fyrir vôrum þar fjórir
frændr ofstopa vændir,
en tolf af Glað Gylfa
gunnþings hvatir runnu,
(kǫld ruðum vôpn) þeirs vildu
várs fundar til skunda.

Sjau hafa sœki-Tívar
Svǫlnis garðs til jarðar
(blóð fell varmt á virða
valdǫgg) nǫsum hǫggvit;
munat fúrviðir fleiri
Fjǫlnis þings an hingat
út of Ekkils brautir
Jalks mœrar skæ fœra.

Hér megu hœlibǫrvar
hljóms daltangar skjóma
dýrs hvat drýgðu fjórir
dags verks séa merki,
en ek, hyrbrigðir, hugða
(hrafn sleit af ná beitu),
gunnar ræfrs, at gæfim
griðbítum frið lítinn.

Unnum auðimǫnnum,
ák þunnan hjǫr, Gunnar
(drógumk vér at vígi)
verk dreyruga serki;
hǫfðu herðilofðar
hildar borðs und skildi
(þvarr hangrvǫlum hanga
hungr) vésæritungur.

Harðr vas gnýr, þás gerðum
grjótvarps lotu snarpa,
gengu sverðs at sǫngvi
sundr gráklæði Þundar,
áðr á hæl til hvílðar
(hlutu þeir bana fleiri),
hjaldrs kom hríð á skjǫldu,
hœkings viðir œki.

Heyri svan þars sárir
sigr stalls viðir falla
(benskári drekkr báru
blóðfalls) of ná gjalla;
þar fekk ǫrn, en erni
eru greipr hræum sveipðar,
sylg, es Sleitu-Helgi
sekauðigr felt rauðu.

Bôru upp af ára
allþakkliga blakki
ýtar oss at móti
almþingssamir hjalma;
en á braut þeir bôru
beiðendr goðum leiðir
hlíða herðimeiðar
hauðrmens skarar rauðar.

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.
