Anon Hsv 7VII/4 — athuga ‘attention’

Afli deila        þú skalt aldrigi
        þér við máttugra mann;
athuga öflgann        skaltu við alt hafa,
        ok ræk þín hús ok hjú.

Þú skalt aldrigi deila þér afli við máttugra mann; skaltu hafa öflgann athuga við alt, ok ræk þín hús ok hjú.

You must never test your strength with a mightier man; you must have strengthened attention for everything, and take care of your house and household.


[4] athuga: athafa 624
