Anon Hsv 18VII/2 — láttu ‘let’

Ofsvefni tæla        láttu þik aldrigi;
        kosta vakr at vera;
leti ok lasta        verðr, þeim er lengi sefr,
        auðit iðugliga.

Láttu þik aldrigi tæla ofsvefni; kosta at vera vakr; verðr leti ok lasta iðugliga auðit, þeim er lengi sefr.

Never let too much sleepiness entice you; try to stay awake; laziness and vices frequently fall to the lot of the one who sleeps for a long time.


[2] láttu þik: ‘[...]’ 696XV
