Anon Hsv 127VII/1 — þína ‘your’

Hyggindi þína        láttu at haldi koma
        þér ok þínum vinum;
æðri sýslu        máttu eigi hafa,
        en kenna nýtt ok nema.

Láttu hyggindi þína koma at haldi þér ok vinum þínum; máttu eigi hafa æðri sýslu, en kenna ok nema nýtt.

Let your wisdom come to be a support for you and your friends; you cannot have a more important job than to teach and learn something useful.
