Epli ellifu
hér hefi ek algullin,
þau mun ek þér, Gerðr, gefa,
frið að kaupa,
að þú þér Frey kveðir
óleiðastan að lifa.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Eleven apples here I have all of gold,*
those I will give you, Gerd,
to buy your favour, that you may say that to you
Freyr’s the least loathsome man alive.’)
