Anon Hsv 49VII/5 — gerir ‘makes’

Þjarka eða þræta        skaltu eigi við þína liða;
        heldr skaltu væginn vera;
sanna elsku        gerir samþykki,
        en þverúð af þrætum vex.

Skaltu eigi þjarka eða þræta við liða þína; skaltu heldr vera væginn; samþykki gerir sanna elsku, en þverúð vex af þrætum.

You must not dispute or argue with your followers; you should rather be balanced; concord makes true love, but discord grows from disputes.
