The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Hvað er með ásum?
Hvað er með álfum?
Gnýr allr jötunheimr,
æsir ru áþingi,
stynja dvergar
fyr steindurum,
veggbergs vísir;
vituð érenn, eða hvað?   (eddic or germanic)

(What disturbs the Æsir? What disturbs the elves?
All Giant-land is roaring. The Æsir are in council.
The dwarfs groan before their rocky doors,
wise ones of the mountain wall—do you want to know more: and what?)
