Beowulf believes the Geats are there for glory because they are warriors who seek honor and fame through their actions. He trusts in their loyalty and courage to face the challenges ahead, rather than assuming they are exiled and have no other choice. Beowulf's confidence in the Geats reflects his own leadership and ability to inspire them to fight for a noble cause.
