The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Ær ertu, systir,
ok örvita
er þú bræðr þínum
biðr forskapa;
einn veldr Óðinn
öllu bölvi
því að með sifjungum
sakrúnar bar.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘You’re mad, sister! you’re out of your wits,
that you wish this evil fate on your brother;
Odin alone caused all the misfortune,
for he cast hostile runes between kinsmen.
)
