Anon Hsv 135VII/2 — deila ‘argue’

Um engar sakir        skaltu aldri deila
        við hygginn hal;
gjöld af guði        hygg ek garpa taka
        fyrir reiði rangs hugar.

Skaltu aldri deila við hygginn hal um engar sakir; ek hygg garpa taka gjöld af guði fyrir reiði rangs hugar.

You must never argue with an intelligent man for the sake of nothing; I think that bold men get repayment from God for the anger of a wrong mind.


[2] deila: so 624, saka 1199ˣ
