Anon Hsv 69VII/3 — hryggja ‘distress’

Ef þik ríkir menn        dæma rangliga,
        lát eigi þinn hryggja hug;
litla stund        fagna því lýða synir,
        ef þeir sælaz á svikum.

Ef ríkir menn dæma þik rangliga, lát eigi hryggja hug þinn; lýða synir fagna því litla stund, ef þeir sælaz á svikum.

If powerful men judge you wrongly, do not let it distress your mind; the sons of men rejoice in it for a short time, if they become happy from treachery.


[3] hryggja: hryggt í 624
