Anon Hsv 50VII/2 — hug ‘intentions’

Gjafir launa        skaltu við góðan hug,
        þær er þér veita vinir;
rækt ok elska        helz með rekka liði
        þeim, er at þurftum dugir.

Skaltu við góðan hug launa gjafir, þær er vinir veita þér; rækt ok elska helz með þeim liði rekka, er dugir at þurftum.

You must with good intentions repay gifts which friends give you; affection and love stay with the company of men who support [each other] in need.
