Anon Hsv 29VII/2 — eigi ‘not’

Öðrum heita        skaltu eigi því,
        er undir öðrum átt;
opt þik tælir,        sá er þú trúat hefir;
        brigð eru beggja heit.

Skaltu eigi heita öðrum því, er átt undir öðrum; tælir þik opt, sá er þú hefir trúat; heit beggja eru brigð.

You must not promise another what you have lent to somebody else; that one may often trick you, whom you have trusted; the promises of both are fickle.


[2] skaltu eigi því: skaltu öngum því 696XV, þú skalt eigi gjöf þeiri 624
