Anon Mv II 4VII/7 — af ‘from’

Sýnaz máttu sögð hjón
sjúku fólki auðmjúk
föðurliga fagrráð
fátækum örlát.
Hævesk og hugljúf
hverjum, þeim í nánd er,
vurðu þau; af velferð
veldi tók að þróaz heldr.

Sögð hjón máttu sýnaz auðmjúk sjúku fólki, fagrráð föðurliga, örlát fátækum. Þau vurðu hævesk og hugljúf hverjum, þeim er í nánd; veldi tók heldr að þróaz af velferð.

The said couple could seem humble to sick people, fair-counselling in a fatherly fashion, generous to the poor. They became courteous and kind to anyone who is near; their power began to increase greatly from prosperity.
