Heill þú nú, Vafþrúðnir,
nú em ek íhöll kominn
áþik sjálfan sjá,
hitt vil ek fyrst vita
ef þú fróðr sér
eða alsviðr, jötunn.   (eddic or germanic)

(Odin said:

6
‘Greetings, Vafthrudnir! Now I have come into the hall
to see you in person;
this I want to know first, whether you are wise
or very wise, giant.’)
