Æ ertu illr gestum,
opt hefir þú hölða,
þá er mik hafa heim sóttan,
til heljar færða.
Gakk á bekk annan,
garpr meinhugaðr,
hnyttr inn harðleiti;
harðr er á borð annat.

 

You are always ill-disposed to guests, you have often sent men to Hel, those who have visited me at home. Go to the other bench, malevolent fighter, hard-faced gnome; otherwise you will have a hard choice.

context: Hundingi, impatient with Hástigi’s reluctance to give up his place for the guests, scolds him and uses threats to gain his compliance.
