Anon Hsv 71VII/6 — heims ‘of the world’

Sjálfan sik        skal eigi seggja hverr
        lasta mjök né lofa;
þat gera þeir,        er göfgir þykkjaz
        ok vilja heims skraut hafa.

Hverr seggja skal eigi lasta né lofa mjök sjálfan sik; þeir, er göfgir þykkjaz ok vilja hafa heims skraut, gera þat.

Every man must neither blame nor praise himself a lot; those who seem noble and want to have the finery of the world do that.
