Ástsamlig ráð        mun þú, einkason,
        þau er ek hefi í kvæði kent;
fræði þessi
        láttu fylgja þér
        alt til endadags.

Mun þú, einkason, ástsamlig ráð, þau er ek hefi kent í kvæði; láttu fræði þessi fylgja þér alt til endadags.

Remember, my only son, the affectionate advice which I have taught in the poem; let this knowledge accompany you to the very last day.

Mss: 1199ˣ(75v), 624(148)

Readings: [2] mun þú: so 624, kenni ek þér minn 1199ˣ    [3] þau: so 624, þessi 1199ˣ;    hefi í kvæði kent: so 624, kveðit hefi 1199ˣ    [4] þessi: þetta 624    [5] fylgja þér: so 624, þér fylgja 1199ˣ    [6] endadags: efsta dags 624

Editions: Skj: Anonyme digte og vers [XIII], [C. E/5]. Hugsvinnsmál 147: AII, 197, BII, 210, Skald II, 110; Hallgrímur Scheving 1831, 26, Gering 1907, 29, Tuvestrand 1977, 151, Hermann Pálsson 1985, 129.

Notes: [All]: Lat. parallel: (IV, Praefatio cont.) haec praecepta tibi semper retinenda memento: / invenies aliquidquod te vitare magistro † ‘Always remember that these precepts should be held fast by you; you will find something [text corrupt]’. In content and phrasing this st. is very close to Sól 81. — [1-3]: 1199ˣ’s text has metrical problems: Ástsamlig ráð | kenni ek þér, minn einkason, | þessi er ek kveðit hefi ‘I teach you affectionate advice, my only son, which I have composed’. It is also further from the Lat. than 624. Hallgrímur Scheving has the same ll. 1-2 as 1199ˣ (echoing st. 2/1-2), but er hér kveðið hefi ‘which I have composed/recited here’ for l. 3 to restore the alliteration. — [5]: The w.o. in 624 is needed to correct the metre.
