Gamlkan Has 6VII/1 — nema ‘unless’

Oss verðr ey, nema þessum
aldr várn boðum haldim
(menn búisk mǫrgu sinni)
meiri ógn (við þeiri),
hver þvít hætt rôð bǫrva
hlms á øfsta dómi
upp fyr allri skepnu
ósǫgð koma lǫgðis.

Oss verðr ey meiri ógn, nema haldim þessum boðum aldr várn; menn búisk við þeiri mǫrgu sinni, þvít hver ósǫgð hætt rôð bǫrva hlms lǫgðis koma upp fyr allri skepnu á øfsta dómi.

Our terror will always increase unless we keep these commands during our lives; let men prepare themselves for it many a time, since all unconfessed, dangerous counsels of the trees of the sound of the sword [BATTLE > WARRIORS] will become known before all creation at the Last Judgement.
