ÓÐR, m., gen. óðs and óðar, [totally different from the preceding word, but akin to Ulf. wods in weit-'wods' = GREEK, weit-wodan = GREEK, weit-wodiþa, weit-wodei = GREEK; cp. also Icel. æði = sense, wit, manner, answering to the Goth. weit-wodei] :-- mind, wit, soul, sense, Lat. mens, Gr. GREEK; the old Vsp. distinguishes between three parts of the human soul, -- önd, óðr, and læ, spirit, mind, and craft(?); the önd was breathed into man by Odin, the óðr by Hænir, the læ by Löðurr; the faculty of speech seems also to be included in the óðr. The tale in Plato's Protagoras is an interesting illustration of the Northern legend as briefly told (and only there) in Vsp. 17, 18: tryggva óð, hafa góðan óð, to be of good cheer, Nj. (in a verse). 2. song, poetry; bragr, hróðr, óðr, mærð, lof, Edda 95 :-- metre, sá er óðinn skal vandan velja, Lil. 98; óðar-smiðr, a 'song-smith' = poet, Eg.

óð-ræði, n. counsel of wisdom or a council(?); hverr mér hugaðr á hlið standi, annarr þegn við óðræði, what other man shall stand by my side, as a friend, in the council? i.e. where am I now to look for friendly help and comfort? Stor. 14; this we believe is the bearing of the passage, and not as explained in Lex. Poët. (= a row, tumult, fight, from óðr, adj.)
