Almanna lof        ef þú eignaz vilt
        ok heita góðr með gum*um,
annars ógæfu
        fagna þú aldrigi;
        sé þín æ at góðu getit.

Ef þú vilt eignaz almanna lof ok heita góðr með gum*um, fagna þú aldrigi ógæfu annars; sé þín æ getit at góðu.

If you want to acquire general praise and be called good among men, never rejoice in another’s misfortune; always be mentioned as good.

Mss: 1199ˣ(75r), 723aˣ(83), 624(146)

Readings: [2] vilt: vilir 624    [3] gum*um: gumnum all    [4] annars ógæfu: ógiptu annars 624    [6] þín æ: æ sé þin 723aˣ, ger þér 624;    getit: gaman 624

Notes: [All]: Lat. parallel: (Dist. IV, 17) Si famam servare cupis, dum vivis, honestam, / fac fugias animo, quae sunt mala gaudia vitae ‘If you want to keep a good reputation while you are alive, make sure to avoid in mind those things which are evil joys of life’. — [3] gum*um ‘men’: Emended from ms. ‘gumnum’ for metrical purposes. Cf. Note to st. 59/3. — [6]: The l. in 624 (also Skj B, Skald) reads: ger þér at góðu gaman ‘take pleasure in what is good’.
