When Welthow gives the mead-cup to Beowulf, she thanks God that her prayers have been answered and a hero has been sent to them. She acknowledges that she has put her hope in Beowulf to save them. Beowulf speaks of his intent to rid the land of the monster Grendel. This pleases Welthow, and she admires his boldness.
