Anon Mv III 3VII/7 — gjörðiz ‘became’

Siða geymdi sjá maðr
sjaldan um barnsaldr;
uppi vill hann heims hopp
hafa, þegar til gaf.
Þegninn lagði þrátt magn
þykkjustórr í víndrykk;
gjörðiz hann við gleðiorð
gálauss um sitt mál.

Sjá maðr geymdi sjaldan siða um barnsaldr; hann vill hafa uppi hopp heims, þegar gaf til. Þykkjustórr þegninn lagði þrátt magn í víndrykk; hann gjörðiz gálauss um mál sitt við gleðiorð.

This man seldom heeded morals during childhood; he wants to uphold the pleasures of the world as soon as there was an opportunity. This insolent fellow incessantly put his energy into wine-drinking; he became careless about his condition among jesting words.
