En ér heyrt hafið,
hverr kann um það
gjörr að skilja,
hver af hraunbúa
hann laun um fekk
er hann bæði galt
börn sín fyr.   (eddic or germanic)

(But you have heard this—anyone wiser about the gods
may tell it more clearly—
what recompense he got from the lava-dweller,
how he paid for it with both his children.*
