‘Heimsku mæla * skalat inn horski Bragi,
þó at þú vel hvat vitir:
fyr Eireki glymr, es hér mun inn koma
jǫfurr í Óðins sali.
‘Inn horski Bragi skalat mæla * heimsku, þó at þú vitir vel hvat: glymr fyr Eireki, es mun koma hér inn, jǫfurr í sali Óðins.
‘The wise Bragi must not talk nonsense, though you know well why: the clangour is made for Eiríkr, who must be coming in here, a prince into Óðinn’s residence.
 vitir vel hvat ‘you know well why’: The thought seems to be that Bragi knows, or should know, what the commotion is about. See LP: 2. (*hvar eller *hver af hveR), hvat 3 for hvat in the sense ‘why’. It could alternatively mean ‘everything’, and is interpreted thus in LP: 2. (*hvar eller *hver af hveR), hvat 4. Hofmann (1955, 48) reads an otherwise unattested cpd velhvat, comparing OE welhwæt ‘everything’.
