Óli fœddi aldinn ara;
allvítt kveðk hans snilli fara;
eigi frák hann armlog spara;
auði gœddi drengi snara.
Víða hygg ek bragna bera
buðlungs nafn, þess’s saddi Gera;
hraustan spurðak vísa vera;
vôpnum kunni benjar skera.

Óli fœddi aldinn ara; kveðk snilli hans fara allvítt; eigi frák hann spara {armlog}; gœddi snara drengi auði. Víða hygg ek bragna bera nafn buðlungs, þess’s saddi Gera; spurðak vísa vera hraustan; kunni skera benjar vôpnum.

Óli fed the ancient eagle; I say that his prowess travels very widely; I did not hear that he spared {the arm-flame} [GOLD]; he enriched valiant warriors with wealth. Far and wide I believe men carry the name of the hero who sated Geri <wolf>; I heard that the ruler was courageous; he knew how to cut wounds with weapons.
