The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Tramar gneypa
þik skulu gerstan dag
jötna görðum í;
til hrímþursa hallar
þú skalt hverjan dag
kranga kostalaus,
kranga kostavön;
grát að gamni
skaltu í gögn hafa
ok leiða með tárum trega.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Fiends will oppress you all the long weary day,
in the giants’ courts;
to the halls of the frost-giants every day you shall
creep without choice,
without hope of choice;
weeping you shall have for pleasure,
and misery shall go with your tears.)
