Oddr, klauftu eigi         at orrostu
— hrökk hjálmat lið —         Hamðis skyrtur.
Guðr geisaði,         gekk eldr í bæ,
þá er á Vinðum         vá sigr konungr.

Oddr, klauftu eigi {skyrtur Hamðis} at orrostu; hjálmat lið hrökk. Guðr geisaði, eldr gekk í bæ, þá er konungr vá sigr á Vinðum.

Oddr, you did not cleave {the shirts of Hamðir <legendary hero>} [MAIL-SHIRTS] in battle; the helmeted band retreated. Battle raged, fire penetrated farms when the king won a victory over the Wends.
