Anon Hsv 112VII/2 — lýða ‘man’

Líkama sinn        ræki lýða hverr;
        heilsa er hölðum framar;
aura njóta        þykkiz engi maðr,
        nema hann heilsu hafi.

Hverr lýða ræki líkama sinn; heilsa er framar hölðum; engi maðr þykkiz njóta aura, nema hann hafi heilsu.

Every man should look after his body; health is very important to men; nobody thinks to enjoy his money, unless he is healthy.
