Anon Sól 10VII/3 — af ‘from’

Munaðar ríki        hefr margan tregat;
        opt verðr kvalræði af konum;
meingar þær urðu,        þótt inn mátki guð
        skapaði skírliga.

Ríki munaðar hefr margan tregat; kvalræði verðr opt af konum; þær urðu meingar, þótt inn mátki guð skapaði skírliga.

The power of desire has brought many a man to grief; torment often stems from women; they become harmful, though the mighty God created them purely.
