Anon (Vǫlsa) 9I/9 — gríp ‘grab’

Víst eigi mætta ek         við um bindast
í mik at keyra,         ef vit ein lægum
í andkætu.
Þiggi Maurnir         þetta blæti!
En þú, Grímr, gestr várr,         gríp þú við Vǫlsa!

Víst mætta ek eigi um bindast við at keyra í mik, ef vit lægum ein í andkætu. Þiggi Maurnir þetta blæti! En þú, Grímr, gestr várr, gríp þú við Vǫlsa!

Certainly I would not be able to resist driving [it] into myself, if we two were lying alone in mutual pleasure. May Maurnir receive this offering! But you, Grímr, our guest, you grab Vǫlsi!
