Anon Hsv 32VII/5 — eigi ‘not’

Ungr skal venjaz        því er þarf aldraðr at hafa;
        varaztu við löst, meðan lifir;
ávítunarlaust        máttu eigi elligar
        dæma um seggja siðu.

Ungr skal venjaz því er aldraðr þarf at hafa; varaztu við löst, meðan lifir; máttu eigi elligar dæma ávítunarlaust um siðu seggja.

When young one must get used to what is needed when old; beware of faults while you are alive; otherwise you cannot judge men’s morals without blame.
