Odin Norse gods Testament

We are a group, looking at the correct historical details, religious perspective from Odin speech and the Norse goods. Meaning of the magic runes

Frigg is in the majority of the mythical legends portrayed as Odin's wise wife and as a worried mother. She may have a common origin with Freja, but has apparently not been cultivated to any great extent in the Viking Age.

Frigg as deity
In the older Edda, a story is told in which Odin must visit the wise giant Vaftrudner to test his wisdom. Odin turns to Frigg to hear her opinion on the upcoming trip. She advises him to stay, but even though he is still leaving, it shows her equality with Odin.

In Snorri's Edda, it is told that Frigg does not bother to make predictions, but still knows the fate of all the future, a statement that may be due to the fact that she is talking to her husband, the all-wise Odin.
The most obvious image of Frigg is like the worried mother who will do anything to secure her son Balder, and it is she who sends Hermod to Hel to get him back after he has been killed.

The myths also give a different picture of Frigg, as Loki accuses her of infidelity at a party at Ægir. This picture is explained in Snorre's beginning of Heimkringla's Ynglinga Saga, where Odin's travels are again in the picture. Odin had two brothers, Vile and Ve, who ruled in his place, but when Odin had once been away for a long time and the Aesir thought he would not return, Vile and Ve shared his inheritance, and they both married Frigg. However, Odin returned shortly after and took her to him again. It is possible this marriage that Loke's accusation refers to.

Frigg and Freja
There is no clear interpretation of Frigg's role. Her name seems to mean "the beloved" or "wife" and the like. Her role as the wife of the supreme god has most likely meant that she has borrowed features from him, while her own original characters have been pushed into the background and slowly obliterated.
There is a lot Frigg and Freja have in common, for example, Frigg is married to Odin, while Freja is married to Od, gods who both go on long journeys and almost disappear in periods. Odin and Od's names are even connected purely linguistically with the meaning "the furious" or "the ecstatic". Despite this, the difference is clear, as Frigg is an ace, while Freya belongs to the habits, but with the significant coincidences, the two goddesses may have been developed from an old common foundation. There may also be a hint of an original common character, as both goddesses were invoked together by women giving birth.

Worship and place names
There seems to have been no zealous worship of Frigg as a deity, as there is only one place that can be attributed with certainty to her, namely Friggeråker in Västergötland.
The Swedes' popular name for the constellation Orion, Friggs rok (Friggs ten) may be of somewhat later origin and most likely has no connection.
The South Germans linked Frigg with Venus, probably through the erotic sides she exhibits in the myths. Friday, "Frigg's Day", is named after the Roman "dies Veneris" Venus' day, when Frigg was just identified with Venus. Tune Johansen

The name Odin
In the sources of Norse mythology, Odin appears unconditionally as the most powerful of the gods. He appears in all respects as the 'king' among the gods.
Since most of the written sources concerning Odin (Old Norse: Óðinn) are from Iceland, it is all the more strange that Odin, judging from place and person names and from the Icelandic sagas, has played virtually no role on the Atlantic island. The reasons for this we shall briefly return to below. Odin's name means 'rage' and has in various forms (Old High German: Wutan; Anglo-Saxon: Woden) been known throughout the Germanic territory very far back.

The question, however, is whether this Pan-Germanic deity has been identified with and had the same functional areas as the Odin we know from the Edda poems and Snorre's Edda. Scholars have strongly disagreed with this, and many have believed that Odin was originally a god of war or god of death or something third, who only in the late Viking Age has grown to honor and dignity as a king of gods. Others have believed that Odin, or a god of the same type, has existed all the way back from Indo-European times and that all the features we encounter in the sources belong together in a solid timber structure.

Odin as the 'intellectual' god

Odin is first and foremost characterized as the 'intellectual' god. He thus masters a large number of forms of magical knowledge, as is narrated in the classic description of Odin which we find in Ynglinga saga chapters 6 and 7.

In a very famous myth ( Hávamál 138-141) it is told how he hung on the world tree Yggdrasill (which means Odin's horse) for nine nights, then picked up the runes and became wiser in words and actions. Runes in this context mean 'secrets' rather than just characters. In any case, the myth is typical, portraying Odin as the knowledge-seeking god. Other similar myths revolve around how he acquires the mead of knowledge and comes into possession of Mimer's head, which can tell him knowledge from other worlds.

Odin as the god of protection

In another type of myth, on the other hand, we encounter Odin - not as the knowledge-acquirer, but as the one who shares his knowledge. This applies to a number of heroes, all of whom are warriors or kings, and whom we meet in the so-called ancient sagas, ancient sagas, and with Saxo, as well as in several edda poems. Here, Odin acts as a kind of patron god for his chosen ones.

For example, it is reported of King Sigmund that as a very young man he was given a sword by Odin, a sword which made him more or less invulnerable and which could not be broken. Characteristic, however, is also that Odin himself makes sure to break the sword when he wants to call Sigmund home to him in Valhal.

Thus it is also said that Odin was not only the god of the living kings but also of the dead, as he, as Snorre says, takes to himself all the men who have died in battle. These mainly include two categories, namely the kings and the members of the so-called warrior unions, which were inaugurated at Odin upon their entry. Other heroes get advice on how to defeat enemies and how to line up their armies.

Odin as 'shamangud'?

This 'intellectual' character has led some scholars to believe that Odin was a kind of 'shaman god', that is, a god who used the same magical techniques that we know from shamans around the world. And it is also true that the Norsemen had close contact with such a shamanistic people, namely the Sami, to whom they were neighbors in northern Norway and northern Sweden; there can hardly be any doubt that these shamanistic techniques were known and respected among the Norsemen. The question, however, is whether it is possible to understand the Odin figure in its entirety, from this complex? The answer to this must be a clear no: Shamans were not kings and princes, so the whole relationship between Odin and the princes will not be explained with reference to Sami shamanism, although it is likely that observations of shamanistic practices have spread,

In conclusion, therefore, we must say that Odin must probably be perceived as a very ancient god who, despite certain changes, has basically been characterized as the god who protected kings and warriors by magical means. From this view, we can explain all the features that emerge from the sources and avoid reconstructing historical development sequences that are, to say the least, uncertain. Tune Johansen

Odin blessing
We are old, but not forgotten
And sing loud and deep in your soul.
We have not been just for poems
And still manages the Le steps.
When you feel the effort you do not know,
So senses you more than what you see.
The Nordic Testament

The Nordic testament
Odin speech.
A better burden you will not find,
then when the dead are carried away to the grave,
then the wisdom, the dead won alive.
Wealth won on distant journeys
is worth less than the legacy,
coming of the neighbor's wise words.


Odin speech
Overconfidence is of evil,
smooth out and laugh when guests consider evil.
be quiet and silent, yes even thoughtful,
rarely will the wary make a fool of one self.
Spirit and humor are much more
than clever phrases and big words.

Sigurd Håkonsson’s blót
One of the most comprehensive descriptions of a blót sacrifice in the North can be found in Hakon the Good’s Saga, which was written by the Icelander Snorri Sturluson in the 1200s.

Sigurd Håkonsson, like his father, frequently made sacrifices. It was the common practice that all farmers from the area gathered at the temple to sacrifice. All were given food throughout the celebration.

Many different animals were sacrificed, especially horses. The blood from the sacrificed animals was collected in bowls and twigs were used to spatter the blood on altars, walls and cult participants. The meat was cooked and then eaten by all in attendance. It was boiled in cauldrons that hung over a fire in the middle of the hall. Full cups of beer were carried around the fire and the magnate, who was the pagan priest, then blessed the meat and the cups.

Toasts were then made. The first was in honor of Odin, “to the king and victory”. Afterwards the cups were emptied for Njörd and Freya in the hope of securing a prosperous and peaceful future. Then the participants emptied their cups with a personal pledge to undertake great exploits, in battle, for example. Finally toasts were made for kinsmen resting in burial mounds.

Odin blessing

And still manages the Le steps.
When you feel the effort you do not know,
So senses you more than what you see.

Religion, magic, death, and rituals
The Vikings’ belief in the Norse gods was of significance to almost all activities – in everyday life or for warriors in battle. They, therefore, sacrificed to the gods to obtain their goodwill. In recent decades dramatic finds have shown that large religious sacrifices in honor of the gods were held at magnates’ residences.

Loki is originally of giant stock, but lives in Ásgard and is respected by the gods as he is a blood brother with Odin. Loki is crafty and not to be trusted. On many occasions he cheats both the giants and gods, and plays them off against each other. Even though Loki is often up to no good, the gods still tolerate his presence. He is sly and lies – abilities that the gods can use to their advantage. This is shown when Loki persuades the equally cunning dwarves to smith various magical objects for the gods – notably Thor’s hammer Mjöllnir.

Sometimes very unusual archaeological finds are made. For example, there is the very strange Viking woman’s grave, which was found at the ring fortress of “Fyrkat”, near Hobro, in Denmark. Amongst the total of around 30 graves from the site, it stands out because of its unusual grave goods. It was the grave of a female, who may have been a seeress.

At the time of burial, the woman was dressed in fine blue and red clothes adorned with gold thread – which had royal status. She was buried, like the richest women, in the body of a horse-drawn carriage. She had been given ordinary female gifts, like spindle whorls and scissors. But there were also exotic goods from foreign parts, indicating that the woman must have been wealthy. She wore toe rings of silver, which have not been found elsewhere in Scandinavia. In addition, two bronze bowls were also found in the grave, which may have come all the way from Central Asia.

Amongst the unusual objects, were a metal wand and seeds from the poisonous henbane plant. These two accessories are associated with the seeress. The most mysterious object is the metal wand. It has partially disintegrated after the long period in the ground. It consists of an iron stick with bronze fittings. This may have been a wand associated with the practice of magic – a völva’s wand or magic wand.

The henbane seeds were found in a small purse. If these seeds are thrown onto a fire, a mildly hallucinogenic smoke is produced. Taken in the right quantities, they can produce hallucinations and euphoric states. Henbane was often used by the witches of later periods. It could be used as a “witch’s salve” to produce a psychedelic effect if the magic practitioners rubbed it into their skin. Did the woman from Fyrkat do this? In her belt buckle was white lead, which was sometimes used as an ingredient in skin ointment.

Other objects in the grave add further support to the argument that the woman was a seeress. At her feet was a box containing various items, such as owl pellets, and small bird and mammal bones. Apart from these, there was a silver amulet shaped like a chair – the seid or magic chair?

It is better to save your prayers
than throwing pearls after swine.
Odin cut runes, since he was the victim.
He wiped out himself and then reappeared,
He raised up and became Odin,
He came back as one that could do everything.
The Nordic testament

Another word needs to be mentioned here
about the one who got an evil mind
and is trying to play a trick on you:
Smile at him, laugh out loud and strongly,
Listen seriously and give him more mjød.
Yes, fill him with crap.
Odin speech The Nordic testament



translation of Odin’s speech and magic songs, I have not aimed to make it either grammatically correct or easy to read, but instead, I have tried to stay true to the original text, without including my personal interpretations of the sayings. This can make it a bit hard to read at times, as it is not an easy flowing text, but I believe it is important, that each person, reading the speech and the magic songs, put time and effort in to see, what they sayings mean to them, do their own interpretations of the sayings.

The original text is not easy to read or translation English as it is written in old Danish langue and sayings, from even older Edda dating back to the 13th century, as well as the interpretations of the old runes. At some stages, I had to look in the old Edda’s to be able to translate the sayings as correct and true as possible. Tune Johansen

The Nordic testament also called the blue bible, is as the official bible in the Ásatrú community. The Ásatrú religion is an officially recognised and government-approved religion in some Scandinavian countries such as Denmark and Iceland.

Odin’s speech and magic songs are now translated and available to buy through PayPal, total cost US $ 12.00. 6142 words, 37 pages and only come as an e-book. To buy go to PayPal and use [email protected] as reference Or send me an email [email protected] and I will send you an Invoice.
