Anon Hsv 147VII/5 — glæpa ‘of sins’

Í ljóðum þessum        megu lýðir nema,
        þat er drengmanni dugir:
gæzku ok mildi        glæpa viðrsjá
        ráð ok rétta siðu.

Í ljóðum þessum megu lýðir nema, þat er dugir drengmanni: gæzku ok mildi, viðrsjá glæpa, ráð ok rétta siðu.

In this poem [lit. these poems] men may learn what helps a good man: kindness and generosity, shunning of sins, advice and correct morals.


[5] glæpa: glæpum 723aˣ, ‘gleppur’ 624
