Anon Hsv 132VII/2 — eigi ‘not’

Ill er ofdrykkja;        ferr hon eigi einsömul;
        fylgir henni mart til meins
angr ok þrætur        ok óstilt lostasemi
        sótt ok synda fjölð.

Ofdrykkja er ill; hon ferr eigi einsömul; mart til meins fylgir henni: angr ok þrætur ok óstilt lostasemi, sótt ok fjölð synda.

Too much drinking is bad; it does not come alone; much harm accompanies it: grief and quarrels and unsatisfied carnal lust, sickness and a multitude of sins.
