Note to stanza
[All]: Hallgrímur Scheving includes ll. 1-3 with the same readings as here, but lacks ll. 4-6, which could be corrupt in 1199ˣ. 624 differs considerably, but is used by most eds (including Skj, Skald and Hermann Pálsson): [[ALT]] Skal kenna gott ok kosta nýtt at nema, sá er vill vera grandvarr; dugir mörgum, sá er af mannviti kennir gum*um gott ‘He who wants to be prudent must teach something good and strive to learn something useful; he helps many, who teaches people something good from understanding’.
