lagði sverð nekkvið,
á meðal þeira;
né hann konu
né húnskr konungr
hefja sér af armi;
fal hann megi Gjúka. (eddic or germanic)
(The man from the south laid a naked sword,*
a slender inlaid blade, between them both;
nor did he seek to kiss the woman,
the southern king did not take her in his arms;
the girl so young he gave to Giuki’s son.
