Anon Hsv 61VII/5 — láttu ‘let’

Fengins fjár        neyttu framarliga,
        ok vert þíns mildr matar;
aura njóta        láttu auma fira,
        ef geraz þarfir þess.

Neyttu framarliga fengins fjár, ok vert mildr matar þíns; láttu auma fira njóta aura, ef geraz þarfir þess.

Use valiantly the property you gained, and be generous with your food; let poor men have benefit of money if it becomes necessary.
