Anon Hsv 107VII/2 — eigi ‘not’

Bana sinn hræðaz        skal eigi bragna hverr,
        þvít hann er endir ills;
góðum mönnum,        þeim er grand varaz,
        dauði ok líf dugir.

Hverr bragna skal eigi hræðaz bana sinn, þvít hann er endir ills; dauði ok líf dugir góðum mönnum, þeim er varaz grand.

Every man must not fear his death, because it is the end of evil; death and life help good men who are wary of sin.
