Anon Hsv 139VII/4 — sárar ‘painful’

Meinlæti drýgja        skal sá, er misgert hefir,
        ok bæta syndir svá;
sárar atgerðir        þarf inn sjúki maðr
        sér til heilsu at hafa.

Sá, er hefir misgert skal drýgja meinlæti ok bæta svá syndir; inn sjúki maðr þarf at hafa sárar atgerðir til heilsu sér.

The one who has transgressed must practise self-chastisement and thus atone for sins; the sick man needs to have painful treatments for his health.
