The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Ek drap Þjaza,
inn þrúðmóðga jötun,
upp ek varp augum
Allvalda sonar
áþann inn heiða himin;
þau eru merki mest
minna verka,
þau er allir menn síðan um sé.
Hvaðvanntu þá meðan, Hárbarðr?   (eddic or germanic)

(‘I killed Thiazi, the powerful-minded giant,*
I threw up the eyes of Allvaldi’s son*
into the bright heaven;
they are the greatest sign of my deeds,
those which since all men can see.
What were you doing meanwhile, Harbard?’)
