Note to stanza
7. Anonymous Poems, Hugsvinnsmál, 64 [Vol. 7, 400]
[All]: Lat. parallel: (Dist. II, 8) Nolo putes pravos homines peccata lucrari: / temporibus peccata latent et tempore parent ‘I do not want you to think that crimes enrich bad men; at times crimes are hidden, but with time they become obvious’. The topic is also dealt with in Hávm 28/4-6 (NK, 21): eyvito leyna | mego ýta sønir, | því er gengr um guma ‘the sons of men cannot keep secret / what’s already going around’ (Larrington 1996, 18). The last l. is very close to the phrasing in Sól 21. 624 contains the same st. twice. Both sts in 624 are so similar in phrasing that the second st. seems to be a correction of the first one. This st. belongs to a small block of three sts quoted twice in 624. The repetition might be due to the fact that, according to the Lat., they should be placed later in the ordering of verses in that ms.
