Anon Hsv 56VII/3 — vel ‘well’

Allsnotr maðr        ef íþróttir nema vill
        ok vel mart vita,
bækr hann lesi,        þær er gerðu bragnar spakir,
        þeir er kendu fróðleik firum,
þvít á fornum bókum        stendr til flestra hluta
        ráðafjölð ritin.

Ef allsnotr maðr vill nema íþróttir ok vita mart vel, lesi hann bækr, þær er spakir bragnar gerðu, þeir er kendu firum fróðleik, þvít ráðafjölð stendr ritin til flestra hluta á fornum bókum.

If a very wise man wants to learn accomplishments and know many things well, let him read the books which wise men who taught people knowledge wrote, because a great deal of advice stands written on most things in ancient books.
