Anon Hsv 74VII/2 — trúa ‘believe’

Sögvísum manni        skaltu sjaldan trúa,
        þeim er með rógi rennr,
þvít málugs manns        reynaz margar sögur
        lýða kind at lygi.

Skaltu sjaldan trúa sögvísum manni, þeim er rennr með rógi, þvít margar sögur málugs manns reynaz lýða kind at lygi.

You must seldom believe a tattling man who runs with slander, because many stories of a talkative man prove to be lies for the race of men.
