Styrkr var á stýris birki
staddr, sá er Árón kvaddi
hǫrðum heiptar-orðum,
hildar ruðr, enn milda;
en í mót fyr mǫnnum
mjǫk lík afar-ríkum
garpr veitti svǫr snǫrpust
sannfrægr hǫfuðsmanni.

Sturla réð í stríði
strangr á land at ganga,
hauðr með hǫldum fríðum
harðr þars Árón varði,
en eldbrota unnar
Iðja dóms á miðjum
Freyr, svát fell enn dýri,
(frama-bragð var þat) lagði.

Sonr jók saxi benjar
seggja kind til beggja
(hlífsendir naut) handa
Hjǫrleifs (vala kleifar);
margr hné maðr við dreyrgar
(málmr sundraðiz) undir,
áðr fullhuginn felli
frægr nær svǫlum ægi.

Frák ofrhugann øfra,
Eyjólf við þrek deyja;
seggr fekk sæmd af hǫggum
sannfrægr tíu manna;
meiðr svam mens frá láði
mætr við stýfðum fæti
(mikit var málma sækis
megn) ok lagðr í gegnum.

Átt hefr Árón hættan
eggja leik við seggi;
stál klauf styrjar deilir
stirðr í Geirþjófsfirði;
rjóðr hljóp rimmu klæða
Rínarlogs at tíni;
otrs veitti bǫrr bitran
bana gjalda Rǫgnvaldi.

Út hefr Árón leitat
ógnramr at Valshamri
(hann varð hreystimǫnnum
harðráðr) ór manngarði;
auðs rak ólmum dauða
enn rǫskligast kenni,
Bjǫrn hné áðr fyr ernum,
undan, bauga lundi.
