Mæltum allir         mót at sumri
austr í Elfi         til útfarar.
Vildi Hjálmarr         inn hugumstóri
sveit mína suðr         með sér hafa.

Allir mæltum mót at sumri austr í Elfi til útfarar. Hjálmarr inn hugumstóri vildi hafa sveit mína suðr með sér.

We all agreed on a meeting the following summer east in the Götaälv for a viking expedition. Hjálmarr inn hugumstóri (‘the Great-minded’) wanted to have my troop go south with him.

Editions: Skj: Anonyme digte og vers [XIII], E. 10. Vers af Fornaldarsagaer: Af Ǫrvar-Oddssaga IX 33: AII, 312, BII, 331, Skald II, 177; Ǫrv 1888, 202, FSGJ 2, 350.

Notes: [All]: See Ǫrv 102 Note to [All]. In the 7 text (Ǫrv 1888, 69) the meeting in the Götaälv is supposed to take place the following spring, in 344a (Ǫrv 1888, 66) the precise time is unspecified. The first helmingr of this stanza relates fairly closely to the prose text, while the second elaborates on Hjálmarr’s supposed motives in wanting Oddr to accompany him to Sweden.
