The new edition is either unpublished or unavailable. The following is taken from an old edition (Skj where relevant):
Veitull þótti ástvinr ýta,
illa líkar þat bóndum ríkum,
þýða þeir at ǫllu eyði
auð-miðlandi fólki snauðu;
eigi lét fyr ilsku gautan
eljangjarn því heldur varna,
aumum þegar hann hafði heima,
hlítar-kost, þótt féin sé lítil.
