Anon Hsv 6VII/3 — orðum

Bragna hvern,        er þú á brautu finnr,
        kveð þú hann kunnliga;
ófróðr er sá,        er einskis spyrr,
        ef finnr at máli mann.

Hvern bragna, er þú finnr á brautu, kveð þú hann kunnliga; sá, er einskis spyrr, er ófróðr, ef finnr mann at máli.

Each man whom you meet on the road, greet him intimately; he who does not ask is unwise, if he finds a man to talk to.
