Anon Hsv 76VII/5 — taka ‘to gain’

Mál hvert, eigi        er skyldu margir vita,
        ber þú fyrir ómálgan upp;
hygginn maðr,        ef vill heilsu taka,
        lætr eptir góðum læknum gera.

Ber þú upp fyrir ómálgan mál hvert, er eigi margir skyldu vita; hygginn maðr lætr gera eptir góðum læknum, ef vill taka heilsu.

Tell to a taciturn person every matter that not many should know; the intelligent man sends for good doctors if he wants to gain health.


[5] taka: so 624, geti 1199ˣ
