Anon Hsv 81VII/5 — gunna

Um lítaz        þarf maðr á alla vegu
        ok við villu varaz;
glöggþekkinn        skyldi gumna hverr
        ok fróðr ok forsjáll vera.

Maðr þarf lítaz um á alla vegu ok varaz við villu; hverr gumna skyldi vera glöggþekkinn ok fróðr ok forsjáll.

A man has to look around in all directions and beware of falsehood; every man should be clear-sighted and wise and foresighted.
