Oddr, vartu eigi         á Atalsfjalli,
þá er fenloga         fengit höfðum.
Vér berserki         binda knáttum;
þá var af kappi         konungs lið drepit.

Oddr, vartu eigi á Atalsfjalli, þá er höfðum fengit {fenloga}. Vér knáttum binda berserki; þá var lið konungs drepit af kappi.

Oddr, you were not on Atalsfjall when we had obtained {fen-flame} [GOLD]. We bound berserks; then the king’s retinue was killed with ardour.
