One evening, because he was in the courtroom of Valhalla
watching Tyr because he gave Fenrir his dinner, a
sudden cloud of care fell around the couch potatoes face of
All-Father, so when the wolf, getting satisfied his
hunger, crouched to his lair, he known as together a
council from the heads from the Æsir—Thor, Tyr, Bragi,
H&oelignir, Frey, and Niörd and, after mentioning for them
the evil that they had permitted to develop up included in this
 requested their counsel regarding the easiest way of overcoming it
before it grew to become too strong to resist.
Thor, always ready, was the first one to answer. "One
would think," he stated, "to listen to the grave means by which
you speak, Father Odin, that there wasn’t any such factor as
a smithy near Asgard, or which i, Asa Thor, didn’t have power
to forge mighty weapons, coupled with never made my name
known in Jötunheim because the conqueror and binder of
monsters. Set the mind resting. Before tomorrow
evening at the moment I’ll have forged a series with
that you simply shall bind Fenrir and, once bound inside a chain
of my workmanship, you will see nothing further to
fear from him."
The put together Æsir applauded Thor’s speech however the
cloud didn’t perish from Odin’s brow.
"You have carried out many mighty deeds, Boy Thor," he stated
"but, basically mistake not, this binding of Fenrir will
prove an activity too hard for you."
Thor made no answer but he grabbed Miölnir,
 and, with sounding steps, strode towards the smithy. All
night lengthy the mighty blows of Miölnir rang around the
anvil, and also the roaring bellows breathed a warm blast
total the hill of Asgard. No Æsir rested
that night but every occasionally one or any other of these
found cheer Thor at his work. Sometimes Frey introduced
his vibrant face in to the dusky smithy sometimes Tyr
entreated permission to strike a stout blow sometimes
Bragi sitting down themself one of the workers, with his
eyes fixed around the glowing iron, put forth quite the hero
song, that the ringing blows stored time.
There is also another guest, who, at times, made
his presence known. Through the light from the fire the evil
type of Fenrir was seen prowling round within the darkness,
and each occasionally a fiendish, mocking laugh filled
the pauses from the song, and also the wind, and also the ringing
Everything night and subsequently day Thor laboured and
Fenrir viewed, and, during the time of supper,
Thor strode triumphantly into Father Odin’s presence,
and laid before him
Læ-  ding, the most powerful chain which had ever yet been forged on
earth. The Æsir passed it in one to a different, and
wondered at its immense length, and also at the ponderous
moulding of their twisted links.
"It’s impossible for Fenrir to interrupt through this,"
they stated plus they were loud within their because of Thor
and praises of his prowess only Father Odin stored a
grave, sad silence.
When Fenrir arrived to a legal court to get his food
from Tyr, it had been agreed that Thor and Tyr would seize
and bind him. They held their weapons in planning,
for they expected a fierce struggle but, for their
surprise, Fenrir silently permitted the chain to become wound
round him, and lay lower at his ease, while Thor, with
two strokes of Miölnir, rivetted the final link into one
from the most powerful gemstones which a legal court rested.
Then, once the Æsir were going to congratulate each
other on their own victory, he gradually elevated his ponderous
form, which appeared to dilate within the rising, with one
bound forward clicked the chain just like a silken thread,
and walked leisurely to his lair, as though no unusual
factor had befallen him.
 The Æsir, with downcast faces, was searching each and every
other. Once again Thor was the first one to speak. "He who
breaks through Læding," he stated, "only brings upon
themself the still harder bondage of Dromi." And getting
uttered these words, he again lifted Miölnir in the
ground, and weary because he was, came back towards the smithy and
started again his place in the anvil.
For 3 nights and days Thor labored, and, as he once
more made an appearance before Father Odin, he transported in the
hands Dromi—the "Strong Binding." This chain exceeded
Læding in strength by half, and it was so heavy that
Asa Thor themself staggered under the weight but
Fenrir demonstrated no anxiety about allowing themself to become bound
because of it, also it cost him hardly any more effort that on
the very first evening to free themself from the fetters.
Following this second failure Odin again known as a council
of Æsir in Gladsheim, and Thor was one of the others,
silent and shamefaced.
It had been now Frey who embarked first to provide a viewpoint.
"Thor, Try, along with other brave sons from the Æsir," he stated,
"have passed their lives
 valiantly in eliminating against giants and monsters, and,
doubtless, much wise lore originates for them through
these adventures. I, typically, have spent my
time peacefully in forest and fields, watching the way the
seasons follow one another, and just how the silent, dewy
night ever leads in the brightly-smiling day as well as in
this watching, a lot of things happen to be made plain in my experience
that have not, possibly, been thought worth regard
by my buddy Lords. One factor which i have discovered is,
the wondrous strength that is based on small things, and
the work transported on in darkness and silence ever
brings forth the grandest birth. Thor and Miölnir have
unsuccessful to forge a series sufficiently strong to bind Fenrir
but, because we can’t be helped through the mighty and
famous, let’s use the unknown and weak.
"Within the caverns and dim places of the world live a small
race of individuals, who’re always dealing with unwearied,
noiseless fingers. With Asa Odin’s permission, I’ll
send my messenger, Skirnir, and entreat help of them
so we shall, possibly, find
 that what passes the might of Asgard might be
accomplished within the secret places of Svartheim."
The face area of Asa Odin brightened as Frey spoke, and,
rising immediately from his seat, he split up the
council, and entreated Frey to get rid of virtually no time in
coming back to Alfheim and despatching Skirnir on his
