Wardruna – Gibu

Gibu

Vin sínum
skal maðr vinr vera
þeim ok þess vinr
en óvinar síns
skyli engi maðr
vinar vinr vera

Veiztu ef þú vin átt
þanns þú vel trúir
ok vill þú af honum gótt geta
geði skalt við þann
blanda ok gjöfum skipta
fara at finna opt

Ef þú át annan
þanns þú illa trúir
vildu af honum þó gótt geta
fagrt skalt við þann mæla
en flátt hyggja
ok gjalda lausung við lygi

Venen sin
skal ein vera ven
og løne gåve med gåve.
Til lått skal mann
med lått svara
og møte ljuging med lygn

Þat er enn of þann
er þú illa trúir
ok þér er grunr at hans geði
hlæja skaltu við þeim
ok um hug mæla
glík skulu gjöld gjöfum

Ungr var ek forðum
fór ek einn saman
þá varð ek villr vega
auðigr þóttumk
er ek annan fann
maðr er manns gaman
Gift

To his friend
should you be friend
them and their friends too;
but to the friend of the enemy
shall no man
ever friend be

Know, if you have friend,
which you think well about
and you want to get well from him
confident you will be
and gifts change
Dad and find it often

If you have another,
which you think badly
End of him you would like to receive;
professionally, you should speak
but fake thinking
and blame the lies with lies.

His friend
should a friend be
and pay gift with gift.
To laugh you should
with laughter reply
and face the lie with lies

Additional applies
about the one you think badly
and whose evil intention you suspect:
minded in their company
and forgiven smooth talk;
evil shall be done with evil.

I was young,
for me alone,
Then I happened upon villages
I kept myself too rich
when I found another,
you are male gamman.
