The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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).

Fleygði Óðinn
ok ífólk um skaut,
það var enn fólkvíg
fyrst íheimi;
brotinn var borðvegr
borgar ása,
knáttu vanir vígspá
völlu sporna.   (eddic or germanic)

(Odin hurled a spear, sped it into the host;
that was war still, the first in the world;
the wooden rampart of the Æsir’s stronghold was wrecked;
the Vanir, with a war-spell, kept on trampling the plain.)
