Seg þú það ið tólfta,
hví þú tíva rök
öll, Vafþrúðnir, vitir;
frá jötna rúnum
ok allra goða
segir þú ið sannasta,
inn alsvinni jötunn.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Tell me this twelfth thing, why all the fate of the gods
you, Vafthrudnir, know;
of the secrets of the giants and of all the gods
tell most truly,
all-wise giant.’)
