Hrothgar presented Beowulf with a new sword, helmet, set of armour and a battle flag. Beowulf was not ashamed to accept, because he felt as though he had earned it.
A celebration was planned. People from all over the countryside traveled to Heorot to see what Beowuf had done. Heorot was once again full of happiness and friends.
Grendel broke free, but Beowulf followed. Everyone was awake by now. Beowulf and Grendel crashed through Heorot, causing terrible damage (No one believed it was possible to create this much damage without fire). Beowulf was not going to let Grendel Live.
Yet Grendel's strength was weakening. His shoulder began to come apart, allowing Beowulf to rip off his arm. It was fatal and Grendel knew it, so he escaped Heorot to return to the moorlands to die.
The Dane’s wishes finally came true! Beowulf had kept his promise and saved them all from evil! In order to display Beowulf's victory, Grendel's arm and shoulder were mounted on the wall of Heorot. All the kinsmen, including the King and Queen, rode to Heorot to witness Beowulf's great deed.
1) I never thought I would be able to get rid of Grendel. Heorot was filled with blood every night, until now, God and one man saved it. He has done what no one could. I will love you Beowulf like my own son. You shall have everything that money can buy.
2) We fought willingly and were blessed with victory. I wish Grendel's whole body had remained here dead in Heorot, but he broke away. However, we have the arm. Grendel must suffer what God had planned.
Hrothgar then brought in 8 horses, with one that had a gold saddle (it was his own prized battle saddle). Hrothgar presented these to Beowulf as well.
