The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Á fellr austan
um eitrdala
söxum ok sverðum:
Slíðr heitir sú.
Stóð fyr norðan,
áNiðavöllum,
salr ór gulli
Sindra ættar
en annarr stóð
á Ókólni,
bjórsalr jötuns,
en sá Brimir heitir.   (eddic or germanic)

(From the east there flows, through poison valleys,
a river with knives and swords, Fearful it is called.
To the north there stood on Dark-of-moon Plains,
a hall of gold, of Sindri’s lineage;*
and another stood on Never-Cold,
the beer-hall of a giant called Brimir.)
