Þá gengureginöll
árökstóla,
ginnheilög goð,
ok um það gættuz
hverr skyldi dverga
dróttin skepja
ór Brimis blóði
ok ór blám leggjum.   (eddic or germanic)

(Then all the Powers went to the thrones of fate,
the sacrosanct gods, and considered this:
who should create the lord of the dwarfs
out of Brimir’s blood and from Blain’s limbs?*)
