Beowulf asks that Hrothgar remember his promise to take care of the Geat warriors if he is killed.

He asks him to send the treasures he's won to the Geat king, Hygelac.

He announces that if he is killed Unferth will get Hrunting back.

The three requests are;

1) He asked Hrothgar to watch over the men he cared about in case he died.

2) Send the treasures he won to Hygelac

3) Give his personal sword to Unferth
