Anon Hsv 12VII/3 — góða ‘the good’

Bækr ok rúnir        kenn þú blíðliga;
        ger þú við góða vel;
illra kvenna        firr þú þik öllu lagi,
        ok ráð hverjum heilt.

Kenn þú blíðliga bækr ok rúnir; ger þú vel við góða; firr þú þik öllu lagi illra kvenna, ok ráð hverjum heilt.

Teach with kindness books and runes; treat the good well; keep away from bad women by all means, and give everybody good advice.


[3] góða: góðan 696XV
