Anon Hsv 4VII/2 — gefa ‘give’

Ef þér góðan grip        gefa hollir vinir,
        eiga þú skalt ok unna allvel;
góðu þú fylg,        en gakk illu frá;
        hvergi þú fyrir ráð rasir.

Ef hollir vinir gefa þér góðan grip, skalt þú eiga ok unna allvel; fylg þú góðu, en gakk frá illu; þú rasir hvergi fyrir ráð.

If loyal friends give you a precious thing, you must own it and enjoy it well; follow good and keep away from evil; by no means rush in headlong.
