He has done his worst but the wound will end him.
He is hasped and hooped and hirpling with pain,
limping and looped in it. Like a man outlawed
for wickedness, he must await
the mighty judgement of God in majesty.

Beowulf, Seamus Heaney (trans.)

Lines 974-978: This describe Beowulf after he had killed Grendel. After his long fight with the demon, he is in pain and agony, but was still able to fight off the beast. And in the contest between good and evil, Grendel is shown to be an insignificant demon from hell, compared to the power and goodness of God.
