Anon Hsv 33VII/3 — eigi ‘do not’

Einmæli manna        ræk þú aldrigi;
        þarftu eigi til þess at hlera;
um sik ræða        ætla seggja hverr,
        hinn er veit á sik sakir.

Ræk þú aldrigi einmæli manna; þarftu eigi at hlera til þess; hverr seggja, hinn er veit sakir á sik, ætla ræða um sik.

Never pay attention to men’s private conversation; you do not need to listen to it; every man who knows he is guilty thinks [people] are talking about him.


[3] þarftu eigi til þess: tak þú til 401ˣ, hirtu aldrigi 624
