Þolinmóðr þú skalt vera við þegna lið;
svá gerir sá, er vill hæverskan sið hafa.
Þú skalt vera þolinmóðr við þegna lið; svá gerir sá, er vill hafa hæverskan sið.
‘You must be patient with a host of men; he who wants to have courtly manners does this.’
Lat. parallel: Dist. I, 38 (cf. st. 52). In 624 the text seems somewhat corrupt, and is probably an alternative translation of st. 52/4-6.
Text is based on reconstruction from the base text and variant apparatus and may contain alternative spellings and other normalisations not visible in the manuscript text. Transcriptions may not have been checked and should not be cited.

þolinnmödur þu skalt vera | vid þegna lid, so giorer sä er vill hæuerskann | sid haffa.
