Anon Hsv 42VII/3 — trúa ‘believe’

Fláráðs manns orði,        þótt fagrt mæli,
        þarftu eigi þeim at trúa;
glyslig orð        lát þú í gegn koma,
        ok gjalt svá líku líkt.

Þarftu eigi at trúa þeim orði fláráðs manns, þótt fagrt mæli; lát þú í gegn koma glyslig orð, ok gjalt svá líku líkt.

You need not believe the word of a deceitful man, even though he may speak fair; let specious words counter them, and thus repay like with like.
