Anon Hsv 118VII/3 — saman

Upptekna sýslu        ef þú eigi
        orka mátt einsamall,
tryggvan vin        bið þú ténaðar;
        vel kveða dyggva duga.

Ef þú eigi mátt orka einsamall upptekna sýslu, bið þú tryggvan vin ténaðar; kveða dyggva duga vel.

If you cannot manage alone a job [you have] started, ask a loyal friend for help; they say that reliable people help well.
