Anon Hsv 120VII/2 — leita ‘Look’

Trúnaðarmanns        leita þú trúliga,
        ef þú vilt góðan vin geta;
at fésælu        kjós eigi fulltrúa
        heldr at sönnum siðum.

Leita þú trúliga trúnaðarmanns, ef þú vilt geta góðan vin; kjós eigi fulltrúa at fésælu, heldr at sönnum siðum.

Look faithfully for a confidant, if you want to get a good friend; do not choose a confidant on the basis of wealth, rather according to sound morals.


[2] leita þú trúliga: leita at ef þér tryggs vilir 624
