Anon Hsv 145VII/6 — stríðir ‘harm’

Þessi *ljóð,        ef þú þekkjaz vilt,
        efla þik til þrifa,
en sá halr,        sem hafna vill,
        stríðir sjálfum sér.

Þessi *ljóð efla þik til þrifa, ef þú vilt þekkjaz, en sá halr, sem vill hafna, stríðir sér sjálfum.

This poem [lit. these poems] will help you to prosperity, if you want to receive it, but the man who wants to reject it, will harm himself.


[6] stríðir: stríðir um 624
