Anon Hsv 126VII/2 — veit

Örlög sín        viti engi fyrir
        né um þat önn ali;
flestir þat vita,        at mun flærðvörum
        dauði ok líf duga.

Engi viti örlög sín fyrir né ali önn um þat; flestir vita þat, at dauði ok líf mun duga flærðvörum.

Let no-one know his destiny beforehand, nor show concern about it; most know that death and life will help the deceit-wary.
