Anon Hsv 82VII/1 — Áts ‘eating’

Áts né drykkju        neyt þú aldrigi,
        svát þitt minkiz megn;
afl ok heilsu        þarft þú við alt at hafa;
        lif þú eigi mart at munúð.

Neyt þú aldrigi áts né drykkju, svát megn þitt minkiz; þú þarft at hafa afl ok heilsu við alt; lif þú eigi mart at munúð.

Never enjoy eating nor drinking to such an extent that your strength decreases; you need to have strength and health for everything; do not live [too] much for pleasure.


[1] Áts né: ‘Azt ok’ 624
