Anon Hsv 45VII/6 — veiz

Ljótlig vömm        ef þú lasta vilt,
        drýgðu eigi sjálfr in sömu;
annan samir þér        eigi at lasta,
        ef þú ert syndauðigr sjálfr.

Ef þú vilt lasta ljótlig vömm, drýgðu eigi sjálfr in sömu; samir þér eigi at lasta annan, ef þú ert syndauðigr sjálfr.

If you want to censure ugly faults, do not commit the same yourself; it does not beseem you to blame another if you are sinful yourself.
