Hví þú þá, Gagnráðr,
mæliz af gólfi fyr?
Farþúísessísal!
Þá skal freista
hvárr fleira viti,
gestr eða inn gamli þulr.   (eddic or germanic)

(
Vafthrudnir said:

‘Why, Gagnrad, do you speak thus from the floor?
Come take a seat in the hall!
Then we shall test which one knows more,
the guest or the old sage.’)
