The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page. It is included for reference only. Do not refer to this site when using this text but rather consult the original edition (Skj where relevant).

Unz þrír kvómu
ór því liði
öflgir ok ástgir
æsir að húsi,
fundu álandi
lítt megandi
Ask ok Emblu
örlöglausa;
önd þau né áttu,
óð þau né höfðu,
lá né læti
né litu góða.   (eddic or germanic)

(Until three gods, strong and loving,*
came from out of that company;
they found on land capable of little,
Ash and Embla, lacking in fate.*
Breath they had not, spirit they had not,
blood nor bearing nor fresh complexions;
)
