Ölr ertu, Loki
svá að þú er örviti,
hví né lezkaþú, Loki?
Því að ofdrykkja
veldr alda hveim
er sína mælgi né manat. (eddic or germanic)
(‘Drunk you are, Loki, so that you’re out of your wits,
why don’t you stop speaking?
For too much drinking affects every man
so he doesn’t notice his talkativeness.’
