Anon Mhkv 1III/6 — henda ‘take’

dylja má, þess er einn hverr segir;

… eitt bregzk hóti síðr.
Fœra ætlum forn orð saman;
flestir henda at nøkkvi gaman;
gleði minnar veit geipun sjá;
griplur er sem hendi þá.

þegir; má dylja, þess er einn hverr segir; … eitt bregzk hóti síðr. Ætlum fœra forn orð saman; flestir henda gaman at nøkkvi; sjá geipun veit gleði minnar; er þá, sem hendi griplur.

… is silent; what any one person says can be denied; … only deceives somewhat less. We [I] intend to bring ancient sayings together; most people take pleasure in something; this nonsense shows my good cheer; it is then as if one gathers pickings.


[6] flestir henda at nøkkvi gaman: ‘[...]gama[...]’ R, ‘[...]da at navkq[...] gama[...]’ RFJ, ‘fl[...]da at navkq[...]gama[...]’ RJS
