Anon Hsv 40VII/6 — vel ‘very’

Aura afla        skaltu á alla vegu,
        sem drengmanni dugir;
aura þinna        skaltu eigi til ónýts hafa,
        þótt þú þik vel auðgan vitir.

Skaltu afla aura á alla vegu, sem drengmanni dugir; skaltu eigi hafa aura þinna til ónýts, þótt þú vitir þik vel auðgan.

You must acquire money in all ways which befit an independent man; you must not use your money for something useless, although you know yourself [to be] very wealthy.


[6] vel: ‘[...]’ 624
