Anon Hsv 117VII/4 — æ

Afl ok eljan        ef þú eignaz vilt,
        nem þú hyggindi hugar;
beztr sá þykkir,        er bæði má
        vitr ok sterkr vera.

Ef þú vilt eignaz afl ok eljan, nem þú hyggindi hugar; sá þykkir beztr, er bæði má vera vitr ok sterkr.

If you want to acquire strength and energy, learn wisdom of mind; he appears best, who can be both intelligent and strong.
