The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page. It is included for reference only. Do not refer to this site when using this text but rather consult the original edition (Skj where relevant).

Gekk inn ísal,
glumðu jöklar,
var karls, er kom,
kinnskógr frörinn.
Verþú heill, Hymir,
íhugum góðum!
Nú er sonr kominn
til sala þinna,
sá er við vættum
af vegi löngum;
fylgir hánum
Hróðrs andskoti,
vinr verliða;
Véurr heitir sá.   (eddic or germanic)

(He entered the hall, the icicles tinkled
when he came in: the old man’s cheek-forest was frozen.*
‘Greetings, Hymir, be of good humour!
Now our son has come to your hall,
he whom we’ve expected on his long journeyings.
Hrod’s adversary accompanies him,*
the friend of warriors, Veor is his name.
