Anon Hsv 88VII/1 — leyna ‘hide’

Löstum leyna        skaltu, sem lengst má,
        þeim er þú veiz með vinum;
halt trú til þess,        ok lát af hljóði fara,
        þat er sjálfan sakir.

Skaltu, sem lengst má, leyna löstum, þeim er þú veiz með vinum; halt trú til þess, ok lát fara af hljóði, þat er sakir sjálfan.

You must, as long as possible, hide the vices you know that friends have; be faithful to that, and let what is harmful to oneself dissipate in silence.
