Tenn hánum teygjaz
er hánum er téð sverð
ok hann Böðvildar
baug um þekkir;
ámun eru augu
ormi þeim inum frána;
sníðið ér hann
sina magni
ok setið hann síðan
ísævar stöð!   (eddic or germanic)

(‘He bares his teeth when the sword is shown before him
and he recognizes Bodvild’s ring;
his eyes are like those of a shining serpent.
Cut from him the might of his sinews*
and afterwards put him in Sævarstad!’
