Anon Hsv 67VII/2 — eigi ‘not’

Forlögu sinnar        skal maðr eigi frétt reka
        né um þat önn ala;
guð veit bezt,        hverjum hann giptu ann,
        ok vita þat eigi fyrðar fyrir.

Maðr skal eigi reka frétt forlögu sinnar, né ala önn um þat; guð veit bezt, hverjum hann ann giptu, ok fyrðar vita þat eigi fyrir.

A man must not enquire about his future fate nor worry about it; God knows best to whom he grants luck and men do not know that beforehand.
