Anon Hsv 141VII/4 — þvít ‘because’

Bölgjörnum manni,        ef þér brugðiz hefir,
        skaltu eigi grand gera,
þvít af annars gæzku        batnar sá iðugliga,
        sá er hefir óvinauðigr verit.

Skaltu eigi gera grand bölgjörnum manni, ef hefir brugðiz þér, þvít sá batnar iðugliga af annars gæzku, sá er hefir verit óvinauðigr.

You must not do harm to a malicious man if he has deceived you, because the one who has not been rich in friends frequently improves from another’s kindness.
