Anon Hsv 9VII/2 — hlæ ‘laugh’

Hatri þú hafna,        ok hlæ þú at öngum;
        gjalt gjöf við gjöf;
vakr þú vera skalt,        ok ver nær staddr
        lýða lögskilum.

Hafna þú hatri, ok hlæ þú at öngum; gjalt gjöf við gjöf; þú skalt vera vakr, ok ver nær staddr lögskilum lýða.

Abandon hatred and laugh at no-one; repay a gift with a gift; you must be alert and be situated near people’s legal proceedings.


[2] hlæ: hlægi 624
