Anon Hsv 68VII/4 — þvít ‘because’

Öfund ok þrætur        skal ýta hverr
        forðaz, sem mest megi;
þvít öfundsamt hjarta        mæða ofrtregar,
        ok eigi hann satt um sér.

Hverr ýta skal forðaz öfund ok þrætur, sem mest megi, þvít ofrtregar mæða öfundsamt hjarta, ok hann um sér eigi satt.

Every man must flee envy and disputes as much as he can, because too many sorrows exhaust the envious heart and he does not see the truth.
