Anon Hsv 98VII/6 — geriz ‘become’

Góðra dæma        leiti gumna hverr,
        sá er vill hyggindi hafa;
annars víti        láti sér at varnaði,
        ok geriz svá góðum líkr.

Hverr gumna, sá er vill hafa hyggindi, leiti góðra dæma; láti víti annars sér at varnaði, ok geriz svá líkr góðum.

Every man who wants to have wisdom, should look for good examples; he should let the punishment of another [be] a warning to him and thus become like good people.
