Anon Hsv 15VII/1 — Af ‘about’

Af afli þínu        vertu óhræsinn,
        ok launa þú góðu gott;
annars eign        girnztu aldrigi;
        unn, þeim er elskar þik.

Vertu óhræsinn af afli þínu, ok launa þú góðu gott; girnztu aldrigi annars eign; unn, þeim er elskar þik.

Do not be boastful about your strength, and return good with good; never desire somebody else’s property; love the one who loves you.


[1] Af afli: ‘[...]li’ 696XV
