With this announcement, all of the Æsir seem to one another, finding themselves in a dilemma. Everyone refused to place their hands in Fenrir's mouth until Týr put his right hand and placed it into the wolf's jaws. When Fenrir kicked, Gleipnir caught closely, and the more Fenrir struggled, the more powerful the band grew. At this, everyone laughed, except Týr, who there lost his right hand. When the gods understood that Fenrir was fully bound, they took a cord named Gelgja hanging from Gleipnir, inserted the cable via a large stone slab called Gjöll , and the gods secured the stone slab deep into the floor. After, the gods took a excellent rock called Thviti , and throw it further into the ground as an anchoring peg. Fenrir responded; he opened his jaws very broad, and tried to bite the gods. Then the gods thrust a sword into his mouth. Its hilt touched the lower jaw and its stage the top one; by means of it the jaws of the wolf were spread apart and the wolf gagged. Fenrir 'howled horribly,' saliva ran from his mouth, and this spit formed the river Ván .
