Anon Hsv 144VII/5 — munu ‘will’

Ódyggra manna        skaltu aldrigi
        fagna bráðum bana;
hitt er sýnna,        at sælir munu
        dyggvir menn, þótt deyi.

Skaltu aldrigi fagna bráðum bana ódyggra manna; hitt er sýnna, at dyggvir menn munu sælir, þótt deyi.

You must never rejoice at the sudden death of wicked men; it is obvious that worthy men will [be] blessed when they die.
