"Slash them! Beat them! Bite them! Gnash them!" the Great Goblin shouted!

There in the Shadows on a large flat stone sat a tremendous goblin with a huge head, and armed goblins were standing round him carrying the axes and the bent swords that they use.

The Great Goblin gave a truly awful howl of rage when he looked at Thorin's sword. And all his soldiers gnashed their teeth, clashed their shields and stamped. They had called it Orctist, Goblin-cleaver, but the goblins simply called it Biter.

"Slash them! Beat them! Bite them! Gnash them!" the Great Goblin shouted, "Take them away to dark holes full of snakes, and never let them see the light again!"

Now goblins are cruel, wicked and bad-hearted. They make no beautiful things, but they make many clever ones.

Hammers, axes, swords, daggers, pickaxes, tongs and also instruments of torture, they make very well, or get other people to make to their design, prisoners and slaves that have to work till they die for want of air and light.

The Great Goblin was in such a rage that he jumped off his seat and himself rushed at Thorin with his mouth open.

Just at that moment all the lights in the cavern went out, and the great fire went off poof! into a tower of blue glowing smoke, right up to the roof, that scattered piercing white sparks all among the goblins.

Suddenly a sword flashed in its own light. Bilbo saw it go right through the Great Goblin as he stood dumbfounded in the middle of his rage. He fell dead, and the goblin solders fled before the sword shrieking into the darkness.
