Véurr kvaðz vilja
ávág róa
ef ballr jötunn
beitur gæfi.
Hverfðu til hjarðar
ef þú hug trúir,
brjótr Berg-Dana,
beitur sækja!   (eddic or germanic)

(Thor said he wanted to row out in the bay,
if the bold giant would give him bait.
‘Go to the herds, if you’ve the guts for it,
mountain-giant-breaker, to look for bait!
)
