And Thingol answered:
'What of your quest, and of your vow?'
But Beren said: 'It is fulfilled.
Even now a Silmaril is in my hand.'
Then Thingol said: 'Show it to me!'
And Beren put forth his empty left hand,
slowly opening its fingers; but it was empty.
Then he held up his right arm;
and from that hour he named himself Camlost,
the Empty-handed.
