Anon Hsv 70VII/2 — lengi ‘for long’

Liðnar heiptir        skaltu eigi lengi muna;
        vertu í trygðum trúr;
sakir at sækja,        þær er sættar eru,
        þat kveða ódyggs manns eðli.

Skaltu eigi muna liðnar heiptir lengi; vertu trúr í trygðum; þat kveða eðli ódyggs manns at sækja sakir, þær er eru sættar.

You must not remember past wrath for long; be faithful to your plighted oath; it is said to be the nature of an unreliable man to pursue actions which have been settled.
