Fæddi mik Ingjaldr         upp í bernsku,
sá er Eikund réð         ok Jaðar bygði.

Ingjaldr fæddi mik upp í bernsku, sá er réð Eikund ok bygði Jaðar.

Ingjaldr brought me up in my childhood, he who owned Ekund and lived in Jæren.

Context: See Context for Ǫrv 63a.

Notes: [All]: As a helmingr self-identifying the hero, these lines may belong to a different version of the story of Ǫrvar-Oddr or, as Edd. Min. lxviii suggests, may relate to a different Ingjaldr. Ms. 173ˣ has only the first two lines of this helmingr. — [1]: Ingjaldr is the name of Oddr’s foster-father, a farmer (bóndi) from Berurjóðr, a farmstead on the coast of Jæren between Egersund and Stavanger. — [3] Eikund ‘Ekund’: An island off the coast of Rogaland in south-western Norway. This island is not mentioned in the prose of Ǫrv, and is named nowhere else in skaldic poetry. — [4] Jaðar ‘Jæren’: Cf. Ǫrv 1/2 and Note there.
