Anon Sól 62VII/5 — heims ‘world’

Menn sá ek þá        marga ófegna;
        þeir váru villir vega;
þat kaupir sá,        er þessa heims
        apaz at óheillum.

Ek sá marga ófegna menn þá; þeir váru villir vega; sá kaupir þat, er apaz at óheillum þessa heims.

I saw many unhappy men then; they had gone astray [lit. were erring with regard to ways]; he purchases that [unhappiness], who fools himself into the misfortunes of this world.
