Penelope sets a challenge for the many suitors that wish to marry her. Odysseus returned home as this was happening, and end up winning the challenge.
"Now flashed arrow from twanging bow clean as a whistle through every socket ring, grazed not one, to thud with heavy brazen head beyond. "
The suitors ask Odysseus to spare them, that he's already killed their ringleader, but Odysseus refuses.
"Father, let me bring you shield and spear, a pair of spears, a helmet. I can arm on the run myself; I'll give outfits to Eumaeus and this cowherd. Better to have equipment."
Odysseus and Telemachus, with help from a cowherd and swineherd, fight off the occupiers of Odysseus' home.
Penelope tests Odysseus with the secret that their bed can't be moved to make sure it's really him. Odysseus says: "I lopped off the silvery leaves and branches into a bedpost."
