Anon Hsv 140VII/2 — eigi ‘not’

Heiptarorða        gerz þú eigi hefnisamr;
        heldr skaltu væginn vera;
af þeiri gæzku        máttu þér gera
        vísa fjándmenn at vinum.

Gerz þú eigi hefnisamr heiptarorða; heldr skaltu vera væginn; af þeiri gæzku máttu gera þér vísa fjándmenn at vinum.

Do not become vengeful because of words; of hate you must rather be yielding; from this kindness you can make certain enemies into friends for yourself.
