Mann of mirth is to his kinsmen dear, though they each shall betray the other when the drighten in his judgement commits his poor flesh to the earth.

Norwegian - Maðr er moldar auki; mikil er græip á hauki.
Maðr is an augmentation of the dust; great is the claw of the hawk.

Icelandic - Maðr er manns gaman ok moldar auki ok skipa skreytir. homo mildingr.
Maðr is the delight of man and augmentation of the earth and adorner of ships.

        This is the rune of human experience. It represents everything it is to be mortal, the joys of kinship, the sorrow of betrayal, achievements of life and the sleep of death.
