The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page. It is included for reference only. Do not refer to this site when using this text but rather consult the original edition (Skj where relevant).

Þá kjömr inn mikli
mögr Sigföður,
Víðarr, vega
að valdýri;
lætr hann megi Hveðrungs
mund um standa
hjör til hjarta;
þá er hefnt föður.   (eddic or germanic)

(Then comes Victory-father’s strong son,
Vidar, to battle the Beast of Slaughter;
With his hand he sends to Loki’s son’s heart*
his sword to stab: then his father is avenged.)
