Anon Hsv 128VII/4 — vel

Illa láta        skaltu yfir engum hlut,
        þeim er þú hælt hefir,
né þat lasta,        sem þú lofat hefir;
        ilt er vályndum at vera.

Skaltu láta illa yfir engum hlut, þeim er þú hefir hælt, né lasta þat, sem þú hefir lofat; vályndum er ilt at vera.

You must express disapproval about nothing that you have boasted about, nor deride what you have praised; it is bad to be fickle-minded.
