Why was Odin afraid of Fenrir?

Odin, the chief god in Norse mythology, was afraid of Fenrir, the monstrous wolf, because of a prophecy that foretold Fenrir's role in Ragnarok, the apocalyptic battle that would result in the destruction of the world. In the prophecy, Fenrir was destined to slay Odin during Ragnarok, which understandably caused fear and concern for the god. This fear ultimately led Odin to take measures to try to control and contain Fenrir, but the wolf eventually broke free and fulfilled his role in Ragnarok.
