Anon Hsv 73VII/6 — syndum ‘sins’

Fégirni rangri        skaltu forða þér;
        ljót er líkams munúð;
orðstír hærra        getr engi maðr,
        en hann við syndum sjái.

Skaltu forða þér rangri fégirni; líkams munúð er ljót; maðr getr engi hærra orðstír, en hann sjái við syndum.

You must save yourself from wrongful avarice; desire of the body is ugly; a man gets no better reputation than if he avoids sins.
