Anon Hsv 16VII/5 — eigi ‘not’

Fámálugr þú vert,        er með fyrðum kemr
        ok at sumblum sitr;
annan fýsa        skaltu eigi illra hluta;
        mæl þú gott ok ger.

Vert þú fámálugr, er kemr með fyrðum ok sitr at sumblum; skaltu eigi fýsa annan illra hluta; mæl þú ok ger gott.

Be reticent when you come among men and sit at banquets; you must not encourage another [to do] bad things; speak and do good.
