Anon Hsv 54VII/2 — nýtis ‘use’

Aura þína        skaltu eigi til ónýtis hafa;
        heldr neyt með hagspeki;
válaðr verðr,        sá er eigi vinna má,
        ef hann hefr aurum amat.

Skaltu eigi hafa aura þína til ónýtis; heldr neyt með hagspeki; verðr válaðr, sá er eigi má vinna, ef hann hefr amat aurum.

You must not have your money for no use; rather use it with sense; he who cannot work becomes poor if he has squandered his money.
