The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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).

Gulli keypta
léztu Gymis dóttur
ok seldir þitt svá sverð
en er Múspellz synir
ríða Myrkvið yfir
veizta þú þá, vesall, hvé þú vegr.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘With gold you had Gymir’s daughter bought*
and so you gave away your sword;
but when Muspell’s sons ride over Myrkwood,*
you don’t know then, wretch, how you’ll fight.’
)
