Anon Hsv 10VII/5 — vel ‘dearly’

Sjaldan þú sitja        skalt sumblum at,
        ok drekk varliga vín;
eiginkonu þinni        þú skalt unna vel;
        hyggðu fyrir hverri gjöf.

Þú skalt sjaldan sitja at sumblum, ok drekk varliga vín; þú skalt vel unna eiginkonu þinni; hyggðu fyrir hverri gjöf.

You must seldom attend banquets, and drink wine cautiously; you must love your wife dearly; take heed of every gift.
