Anon Hsv 89VII/4 — eigi ‘not’

Illa áleitni        ræk þú aldrigi,
        ef þú lastvarr lifir;
eigi er auðgætt,        þat er öllum líki;
        ger þú, svát góðr lofi.

Ræk þú aldrigi illa áleitni, ef þú lifir lastvarr; eigi er auðgætt, þat er öllum líki; ger þú, svát góðr lofi.

Never worry about evil rebuke if you live as a virtuous person; it is not easy [to do] what pleases everyone; behave in such a way that a good person praises [you].
