Anon Hsv 115VII/5 — er ‘which’

Fljóta raun        skaltu við flest hafa,
        þat er grunsamligt geriz;
leyndir lestir,        þeir er lengi felaz,
        gera mörgum mein.

Skaltu hafa fljóta raun við flest, þat er geriz grunsamligt; leyndir lestir, þeir er lengi felaz, gera mörgum mein.

You must have a quick test for everything that is suspicious; secret vices which have been hidden for a long time do many people harm.


[5] er: om. 720a IV, 723aˣ
