Anon Hsv 90VII/1 — orðum ‘words’

Blíðum orðum        þótt þik bragnar kveði,
        þarftu eigi þeim at trúa;
opt sá fagrt mælir,        er hefir flátt hugat;
        ráð er at sjá við svikum.

Þótt bragnar kveði þik blíðum orðum, þarftu eigi at trúa þeim; sá mælir opt fagrt, er hefir hugat flátt; ráð er at sjá við svikum.

Although men may greet you with pleasant words, you need not believe them; he often speaks fair, who has considered deceit; it is advisable to look out for treachery.
