Anon Hsv 58VII/2 — vel

Ókunnum samir þér        opt at duga,
        ef þú vilt vinsæll vera;
veldi betra        þykkir vitrum hal
        at eiga víða vini.

Samir þér at duga ókunnum opt, ef þú vilt vera vinsæll; vitrum hal þykkir veldi betra at eiga víða vini.

It befits you to help an unknown man often, if you want to be popular; to a wise man it seems better than power to have friends far and wide.
