Chapter 40 - How Gudrun cast herself into the Sea, but was brought ashore again.
Gudrun had a daughter by Sigurd hight Swanhild; she was the fairest of all women, eager-eyed as her father, so that few durst look under the brows of
her; and as far did she excel other woman-kind as the sun excels the other lights of heaven.
But on a day went Gudrun down to the sea, and caught up stones in her arms, and went out into the sea, for she had will to end her life. But mighty billows
drave her forth along the sea, and by means of their upholding was she borne along till she came at the last to the burg of King Jonakr, a mighty king, and
lord of many folk. And he took Gudrun to wife, and their children were Hamdir, and Sorli, and Erp; and there was Swanhild nourished withal.

Guđrún átti dóttur viđ Sigurđi, er Svanhildr hét. Hún var allra kvenna vćnst ok hafđi snör augu sem fađir hennar, svá at fár einn ţorđi at sjá undir hennar brýnn.
Hún bar svá mjök af öđrum konum um vćnleik sem sól af öđrum himintunglum.
Guđrún gekk eitt sinn til sćvar ok tók grjót í fang sér ok gekk á sćinn út ok vildi tapa sér. Ţá hófu hana stórar bárur fram eptir sjánum, ok fluttist hún međ
ţeira fulltingi ok kom um síđir til borgar Jónakrs konungs. Hann var ríkr konungr ok fjölmennr. Hann fekk Guđrúnar. Ţeira börn váru ţeir Hamđir ok Sörli ok Erpr.
Svanhildr var ţar upp fćdd.
