Anon Hsv 113VII/3 — við ‘of’

Þat skaltu gera,        sem þér gegnir vel,
        ok við villu varaz;
mildr af þurftum        vertu í mörgum hlutum;
        gott er dyggum at duga.

Skaltu gera þat, sem gegnir þér vel, ok varaz við villu; vertu í mörgum hlutum mildr af þurftum; gott er at duga dyggum.

You must do what suits you well and beware of error; be in many things generous as necessary; it is good to help the trustworthy.


[3] við villu varaz: varaz villu mest 723aˣ
