Anon Sól 15VII/6 — guði ‘God’

Ofmetnað drýgja        skyldi engi maðr,
        — þat hefk sannliga sét —
þvít þeir hverfa,        er honum fylgja,
        flestir guði frá.

Engi maðr skyldi drýgja ofmetnað — þat hefk sannliga sét — þvít flestir þeir er honum fylgja, hverfa frá guði.

No man should cultivate pride — I have truly seen that — because most of those who pursue it turn away from God.


[6] guði frá: frá guði papp15ˣ, 738ˣ, 167b 6ˣ, 1441ˣ, 10575ˣ
