Anon Hsv 51VII/3 — gerir ‘cause’

Þrælum þínum        reiðz þú eigi þungliga,
        svát þú þeim grand gerir;
þvít sjálfum sér        aflar síns skaða
        hverr, sem meiðir mann.

Reiðz þú eigi þungliga þrælum þínum, svát þú gerir þeim grand, þvít hverr, sem meiðir mann, aflar skaða síns sér sjálfum.

Do not become violently angry with your servants, so that you cause them an injury, because everbody who injures a man causes harm to himself.
