Anon Hsv 27VII/3 — eigi ‘not’

Þann dugnað veitt        vinum þínum,
        sem eigi fylgir mein til mikit;
annars illsku        láttu aldrigi
        standa þér fyrir þrifum.

Veitt vinum þínum þann dugnað, sem eigi fylgir til mikit mein; láttu aldrigi annars illsku standa þér fyrir þrifum.

Give your friends that [kind of] assistance which is not accompanied by too much harm; never let another’s ill will stand in the way of your wellbeing.
