3e. Security and War Aftermath
[025/04] Here are the rights of all Fryas to ensure their security:
1. When laws are made, or new rules established, this must be done for the common good and never for the benefit of individuals, nor for that of individual families, towns, or anything else that is individual.
2. When war breaks out and houses or ships are destroyed in whatever way, by the enemy or for the general cause, the community — that is all the folk together — must repair them again. This is so that no one shall contribute to the failure of the common cause in order to save his own estate.
3. When war has passed and there are some so injured that they can no longer work, then the community must see to their care. At feasts, they must sit in the front so that the youth may honor them.
4. Widows and orphans of war  must also be cared for, and the sons may write the names of their fathers on their shields for the honor of their families.
5. If anyone has been captured by the enemy and they come back, they must be kept far away from the encampment, as they may have been set free through traitorous promises. This way, they may avoid keeping their promises without forfeiting their honor.
6. If we capture enemies ourselves, they are to be brought far away into the lands and educated about our Frya morals.
7. If they are afterwards set free, it must be done with kindness by the maidens, in order that we win allies and friends instead of creating adversaries and enemies.
[p.37 cont.] Here are the Rules Established for the Security of all Frisians.
1. Whenever new laws are made or new regulations [p.39] established, they must be for the common good, and not for individual advantage.
2. Whenever in time of war either ships or houses are destroyed, either by the enemy or as a matter of precaution, a general levy shall be assessed on the people to make it good again, so that no one may neglect the general welfare to preserve his own interest.
3. At the conclusion of a war, if any men are so severely wounded as to be unable to work, they shall be maintained at the public expense, and shall have the best seats at festivals, in order that the young may learn to honour them.
4. If there are widows and orphans, they shall likewise be maintained at the public expense; and the sons may inscribe the names of their fathers on their shields for the honour of their families.
5. If any who have been taken prisoners should return, they must be kept separate from the camp, because they may have obtained their liberty by making treacherous promises, and thus they may avoid keeping their promises without forfeiting their honour.
6. If any enemies be taken prisoners, they must be sent to the interior of the country, that they may learn our free customs.
7. If they are afterwards set free, it must be done with kindness by the maidens, in order that we may make them comrades and friends, instead of haters and enemies.
