Anon Hsv 24VII/3 — þína

Konu þinnar        hlýð þú eigi kveinstöfum,
        þótt hon þræla saki;
opt hon þann hatar,        er þér hollr geriz,
        reyndu, hvat it sanna sé.

Hlýð þú eigi kveinstöfum konu þinnar, þótt hon saki þræla; hon hatar opt þann, er geriz þér hollr; reyndu, hvat it sanna sé.

Do not listen to your wife’s complaints, although she may blame the servants; often she hates him who is loyal to you; test out what is the truth.
