Sér þú þenna mæki, mær,
mjóvan, málfán,
er ek hefi í hendi hér?
Höfuð höggva
ek mun þér hálsi af
nema þú mér sætt segir.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Do you see this sword, girl, slender, inlaid,
which I have here in my hand?
Your head I shall strike from your neck
unless you declare we are reconciled.’)
