Anon Hsv 124VII/4 — orðum ‘words’

Málum hlýðir,        ef með mörgum kemr
        hölðum, hygginn maðr;
af orðum kennaz        ýta hagir;
        þokka hylr, sá er þegir.

Hygginn maðr hlýðir málum, ef kemr með mörgum hölðum; hagir ýta kennaz af orðum; þokka hylr, sá er þegir.

A wise man listens to conversations, if he comes among many men; the affairs of men are known through words; the one who keeps silent conceals his thought.
