Anon Hsv 108VII/5 — ræki ‘care’

Föður ok móður        unn þú fróðhugaðr
        jöfnum ástarhug;
hvárkis þeira        ræki maðr hylli svá,
        at týni annars ást.

Unn þú fróðhugaðr föður ok móður jöfnum ástarhug; maðr ræki hylli hvárkis þeira svá, at týni ást annars.

Love, wise-minded, your father and mother with equal affection; a man should not care for the favour of one of them such that he loses the other’s love.


[5] ræki: rækir 723aˣ
