Draumum sínum        skulu eigi dróttir trúa;
        tæla þeir ýta opt;
sofanda manni þykkir
        þat, er sjálfr, þegar at vakir,
        æskir sér eða óaz.

Dróttir skulu eigi trúa draumum sínum; þeir tæla ýta opt; þat, er sjálfr æskir sér eða óaz, þegar at vakir, þykkir manni sofanda.

Men should not believe their dreams; they often deceive people; what he wishes for himself or fears when awake, appears to a man when asleep.

Mss: 1199ˣ(74r), 624(145)

Readings: [1] Draumum: óvinum 624    [2] skulu eigi dróttir: skyldi dróttir eigi 624    [3] ýta: seggi 624    [4] sofanda: sofandi 1199ˣ, 624;    manni: om. 624    [5] þegar at: meðan 624

Editions: Skj: Anonyme digte og vers [XIII], [C. E/5]. Hugsvinnsmál 86: AII, 185, BII, 200, Skald II, 104; Hallgrímur Scheving 1831, 21, Konráð Gíslason 1860, 551, Gering 1907, 23, Tuvestrand 1977, 119, Hermann Pálsson 1985, 88.

Notes: [All]: Lat. parallel: (Dist. II, 31) Somnia ne cures, nam mens humana quod optat, / dum vigilat, sperat, per somnum cernit id ipsum ‘Do not pay attention to dreams; for the human mind hopes for what it wishes for while it is asleep, [and] through dreaming recognises that very thing [i.e. what it wishes for]’. — [1] draumum ‘dreams’: 624 and the copy of it in AM 148 8°ˣ (fol. 73r, l. 18) have óvinum ‘enemies’, although Skj A reads ‘Dvmum’. The reading in 624 might have been influenced by Sól 19.
