Anon Hsv 105VII/4 — kona ‘woman’

Reiðrar konu        skaltu eigi rógi trúa
        né at því gaum gefa;
kaldráð kona,        hygg ek, klökkvandi
        biði opt óþarfra hluta.

Skaltu eigi trúa rógi reiðrar konu né gefa gaum at því; ek hygg, kaldráð, klökkvandi kona biði opt óþarfra hluta.

You must not believe the slander of an angry woman nor pay attention to it; I think a calculating, crying woman may often ask for unnecessary things.


[4, 5] kaldráð kona hygg ek klökkvandi: om. 624
