Mér gaf Hjálmarr         inn hugumstóri
fimm bólstaði         á fold saman.
Unða ek auði,         meðan aðrir mik
hringa kvöddu         ok heils friðar.

Hjálmarr inn hugumstóri gaf mér fimm bólstaði saman á fold. Ek unða auði, meðan aðrir kvöddu mik hringa ok heils friðar.

Hjálmarr inn hugumstóri (‘the Great-minded’) gave me five homesteads together in the land. I enjoyed my prosperity, while others demanded rings and sound peace from me.

Mss: 343a(81r), 471(95r), 173ˣ(62vb-63ra) (Ǫrv)

Readings: [3] fimm: ‘v’ 471, 173ˣ;    ból‑: bú‑ 173ˣ    [6] meðan: á meðan 173ˣ    [7] hringa: hringum all

Editions: Skj: Anonyme digte og vers [XIII], E. 10. Vers af Fornaldarsagaer: Af Ǫrvar-Oddssaga IX 35: AII, 312, BII, 331, Skald II, 177; Ǫrv 1888, 203, FSGJ 2, 351.

Notes: [All]: The first helmingr follows the prose saga closely, though a line is missing in 7 corresponding to that part of the stanza; from what remains in 7, it seems that Hjálmarr only gave Oddr three (not five) homesteads, though five are mentioned in 344a. — [7] hringa ‘rings’: It is necessary to emend all mss’ hringum (dat. pl.) to hringa (gen. pl.), as kveðja ‘demand’ takes the acc. of the person and the gen. of the thing demanded.
