Anon Hsv 11VII/6 — þín

Oddi ok eggju        ver þú þína óðaljörð,
        ok eigi auðtryggr ver;
fyrir orðum ok eiðum        hyggðu öllum vel,
        ok halt við fyrða heit.

Ver þú óðaljörð þína oddi ok eggju, ok ver eigi auðtryggr; hyggðu vel fyrir öllum orðum ok eiðum, ok halt heit við fyrða.

Defend your native land with point and edge and do not be credulous; think well about all your words and oaths and keep promises to people.
