Mun óbundinn á ýta sjǫt
áðr jafngóðr á auða trǫð
Fenrisulfr mun fara óbundinn á sjǫt ýta, áðr jafngóðr konungmaðr komi á auða trǫð.
The wolf Fenrir, unbound, will enter the abode of men before so good a royal person comes onto the vacant path.
 trǫð: ‘traut’ FskBˣ
 trǫð ‘path’: The sense of ll. 4-6 is that no king equal to Hákon will come in his place before Ragnarǫk. Cf. OE on lāst faran ‘go in the footprints’, i.e. ‘follow’. Other, more specific interpretations, are less convincing: Storm (1900, 117) thinks the path is Fenrir’s rather than Hákon’s. Sahlgren (1927-8, I, 79-81) argues that the reference is to the path leading to the king’s manor. Uppström (1919, 49) takes the meaning to be ‘throne’.
