The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Tóku þeir brás Buðla
ok brugðu til knífi,
æpði illþræli
áðr odds kenndi;
tóm léz að eiga,
teðja vel garða,
vinna ið vergasta
ef hann við rétti;
feginn léz þó Hjalli
að hann fjör þægi.   (eddic or germanic)

(They took Budli’s scullion and took out their knives,
the wicked slave howled before he felt the point;
said he’d have the time to dung the fields for them,
do the filthiest work, if that would get him out of it;
Hialli said he’d be very glad if he could keep his life.
)
