Faun – Odin

Odin

In eisiger Vorzeit hast du einst gewacht,
Hast Gungnir geworfen, warst Speer in der Schlacht,
Zogst durch die Neun Welten als Wandrer bei Nacht,
Hast uns Mimirs heiligen Brunnen wieder gebracht.

Neun Tage hingst du
In Yggrasils Zweigen,
Neun lange Nächte
Für 16 magische Zeichen.

Magische Zeichen um den Tod zu beschwören
Um Kranke zu heilen und Feinde zu stören,
Um Flammen zu halten, die Schwerter zu lenken,
Um Geister zu fragen und die Speere zu senken.

Neun Tage hingst du
In Yggrasils Zweigen,
Neun lange Nächte
Für 16 magische Zeichen.

Hávamál, verse 138, 139, 144

Veit ek, at ek hekk
Vindga meiði á
Nætr allar níu
Geiri undaðr
Ok gefinn Óðni
Sjalfr sjalfum mér
á þeim meiði
Er manngi veit
Hvers af rótum renn

Við hleifi mik sældu
Né við hornigi;
Nýsta ek niðr
Nam ek upp rúnar
æpandi nam
Fell ek aftr þaðan

Veistu, hvé rísta skal?
Veistu, hvé ráða skal?
Veistu, hvé fáa skal?
Veistu, hvé freista skal?
Veistu, hvé biðja skal?
Veistu, hvé blóta skal?
Veistu, hvé senda skal?
Veistu, hvé sóa skal?
Odin

In icy past you once guarded
You threw Gungnir, you were a spear in the battle
You wandered the nine worlds as a wanderer at night
You found Mimir's well again

Nine days you hang
From Yggrasil's twigs
Nine long nights
For 16 magical signs

Magical sings to invoke death
To heal the ill and disturb the enemies
To hold flames, to control the swords
To catch ghosts and to lower the spears

Nine days you hang
From Yggrasil's twigs
Nine long nights
For 16 magical signs

Hávamál, verse 138, 139, 144

I know that I hung
On a windy tree
Nine long nights,
Wounded with a spear,
Dedicated to Odin,
Myself to myself,
On that tree
Of which no man knows
From where its roots run.

No bread did they give me
Nor a drink from a horn,
Downwards I peered;
I took up the runes,
Screaming I took them,
Then I fell back from there.

Do you know how to write?
Do you know how to interpret?
Do you know how to color them?
Do you know how to consider?
Do you know how to consult?
Do you know how to sacrifice?
Do you know how to send?
Do you know how to kill?
