Nú hefi ek órar         iðnir talðar,
þær er forðum vér         framðar höfðum.
Opt gengum vér         til öndvegis
sigri fegnir;         látum Sjólf mæla!

Nú hefi ek talðar iðnir órar, þær er vér höfðum framðar forðum. Vér gengum opt fegnir sigri til öndvegis; látum Sjólf mæla!

Now I have enumerated our [my] deeds, those which we [I] have performed formerly. Often we [I] went to the high seat rejoicing in victory; let us [me] make Sjólfr speak!

Readings: [1] órar: várar 344a, 343a, 471    [3] vér: om. 343a    [4] höfðum: ‘h[…]fðum’ 343a    [5] Opt: aptr with superscript r changed from m in scribal hand 344a, aptr 343a, 471;    gengum vér: geng ek nú 344a    [7] fegnir: ‘fegen’ or ‘fegens’ changed in a later hand from fegnir 344a, gæddir 343a, 471

Editions: Skj: Anonyme digte og vers [XIII], E. 10. Vers af Fornaldarsagaer: Af Ǫrvar-Oddssaga VII 25: AII, 303, BII, 322, Skald II, 172; Ǫrv 1888, 167, Ǫrv 1892, 84, FSGJ 2, 320; Edd. Min. 70.

Context: As for Ǫrv 53.

Notes: [All]: Aside from l. 1, all pronouns, adjectives and verbs in this stanza are pl., but it is assumed that Oddr is speaking of himself here, though it is possible that he includes his close companions. — [7] fegnir sigri ‘rejoicing in victory’: The younger mss 343a and 471 have gæddir sigri ‘enriched with victory’, which is also a possible reading.
