Anon Hsv 100VII/6 — ljótu

Eigi skaltu þegja,        þóttu sért þess beðinn,
        um annars ósiðu;
illr þykkir sá,        er með öðrum hefir
        ljótu ráði leynt.

Skaltu eigi þegja um annars ósiðu, þóttu sért beðinn þess; sá þykkir illr, er hefir leynt ljótu ráði með öðrum.

You must not keep silent about another’s immorality, although you may be asked to [keep silent]; he is considered bad, who has hidden a bad action [carried out] by another.
