Hæng kalla mik
hálfu nafni;
mun ek veita þér
viðnám heðan.
Skaltu víst vita,
áðr vit skiljum,
at búkörlum
bíta örvar.

 

They call me Hœngr (‘Salmon’) as half [of my] name; I will offer you resistance from here. You shall certainly know, before we two part, that arrows bite farmers.

context: Ketill identifies himself a second time. The stanza is introduced with the words: Ketill kvað ‘Ketill said’ immediately after Ket 6.
