Anon Hsv 25VII/4 — orða ‘words’

Ef þú vin átt,        þann er þér vildr sé,
        fýs þú hann gott at gera;
orða þinna        þótt hann kunni öngva þökk,
        þó skaltu hann við vammi vara.

Ef þú átt vin, þann er sé þér vildr, fýs þú hann at gera gott; þótt hann kunni öngva þökk orða þinna, skaltu hann þó vara við vammi.

If you have a friend who is agreeable to you, encourage him to do good; although he might be ungrateful for your words, you must nonetheless warn him against wrongdoing.
