Anon Hsv 64VII/6 — síðir ‘time’

Ódyggra manna        skaltu eigi atferð nema,
        þótt þeim verði flærð at frama;
löstum eigi        megu þeir lengi leyna;
        upp koma um síðir svik.

Skaltu eigi nema atferð ódyggra manna, þótt flærð verði þeim at frama; þeir megu eigi lengi leyna löstum; um síðir koma upp svik.

You must not learn the behaviour of unreliable people, although deceit may advance them; they cannot conceal vices for long; in time treachery comes out.


[6] síðir svik: so 624(144), 624(143)
