Anon Hsv 131VII/4 — þvít ‘because’

Fyrir augum vaxa        lát þér aldrigi
        at kenna nýtt ok nema,
þvít holla speki        lofa hyggnir menn
        en lasta heimskan hal.

Lát þér aldrigi vaxa fyrir augum at kenna ok nema nýtt, þvít hyggnir menn lofa holla speki en lasta heimskan hal.

Never let yourself shrink from teaching and learning something useful, because wise men praise wholesome wisdom and censure a foolish man.
