Anon Hsv 60VII/6 — eigi ‘not’

Einskis þræta        skaltu óráðins hlutar
        reiðr við rekka lið,
þvít reiðr maðr        fylliz rangs hugar;
        eigi hann satt um sér.

Skaltu reiðr þræta einskis óráðins hlutar við rekka lið, þvít reiðr maðr fylliz rangs hugar; hann um sér eigi satt.

[When you are] angry, you must not debate undecided things with a host of men, because an angry man is filled with a wrong mind; he does not see the truth.
