Anon Hsv 55VII/1 — af ‘if’

Örr af þurftum        skaltu við ýta lið,
        ok dugi vel vinum;
sá mun þrífaz,        er þarfr geriz
        sér ok sínu liði.

Skaltu örr við lið ýta af þurftum, ok dugi vel vinum; sá mun þrífaz, er geriz þarfr sér ok liði sínu.

You must [be] open-handed with a host of men if needed, and help your friends well; he will prosper who is useful for himself and his men.


[1] af: at 401ˣ
