Skammt mun nú mál okkað vera,
allz þú mér skætingu einni svarar;
launa mun ek þér farsynjun
ef við finnumk ísinn annað!
Farþú nú þars þik hafi allan gramir! (eddic or germanic)
(‘Short will our conversation be now, since you answer me only with jeers.
I’ll reward you for refusing to ferry me, if we meet another time.
Go where the monsters’ll get you!’
