Anon Hsv 52VII/1 — Fyrir ‘to’

Fyrir öðrum vægja        samir þér iðugliga,
        þótt þú meira megir;
friðsamr við annan        skyldi fyrða hverr,
        sá er vill hæstan tír hafa.

Samir þér iðugliga vægja fyrir öðrum, þótt þú megir meira; hverr fyrða, sá er vill hafa hæstan tír, skyldi friðsamr við annan.

It often befits you to yield to others, although you may be capable of more; every man who wants to have the highest renown must [be] peaceful with another.


[1] Fyrir: ‘[...]’ 401ˣ
