Anon Sól 26VII/3 — eigi ‘do not’

Reiðiverk,        þau er þú unnit hefr,
        bæt þú eigi illu yfir;
grættan gæla        skaltu með góðum hlutum;
        þat kveða sálu sama.

Reiðiverk, þau er þú hefr unnit, bæt þú eigi illu yfir; skaltu gæla grættan með góðum hlutum; þat kveða sama sálu.

The angry deeds that you have committed, do not compensate for them with wickedness; you must comfort the weeping one with good things; they say that befits the soul.


[3] bæt þú eigi illu yfir ‘do not compensate for them with wickedness’: Cf. Hsv 87.
