Anon Hsv 59VII/5 — eigi ‘not’

Áhyggju bera        skaltu fyrir öngum hlut,
        þeim er leynir guð gum*a,
þvít himneska skepnu        megu eigi höldar vita,
        þeir er á jörðu búa.

Skaltu bera áhyggju fyrir öngum hlut, þeim er guð leynir gum*a, þvít höldar, þeir er á jörðu búa, megu eigi vita himneska skepnu.

You must not be concerned about anything which God conceals from men, because men who live on earth cannot know heavenly creation.
