Anon Hsv 46VII/3 — af ‘from’

Einskis biðja        samir þér annan þess,
        er gengr af réttri rifi;
ósvinnr maðr        biðr þess iðugliga,
        er hann þarf hvergi at hafa.

Samir þér biðja annan einskis þess, er gengr af réttri rifi; ósvinnr maðr biðr iðugliga þess, er hann þarf hvergi at hafa.

It befits you to ask another for nothing which departs from right reason; an unwise man frequently asks for that which he does not need to have.


[3] gengr af réttri rifi: er gengr af restu rifi 723aˣ, ‘ei geingr af re[...]rife’ 401ˣ, þú eigi þarft 624
