The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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 var austr
ok jötna barðag
brúðir bölvísar
er til bjargs gengu;
mikil myndi ætt jötna
ef allir lifði,
vætr myndi manna
undir Miðgarði.
hvaðvanntu þá meðan, Hárbarðr?   (eddic or germanic)

(‘I was in the east, and I fought against giants,
malicious women, who roamed in the mountains;
great would be the giant race if they all survived:
there’d be no humans within Midgard.
What were you doing meanwhile, Harbard?’
)
