1. [20] SAHWERSA VSA SWETHNATA EN DÉL LÁND HÀVE JEFTHA WÉTIR THAT VS GOD TOLIKTH SA FOCHT.ET VS VMBE THAT A KÁP TO FRÉJA NILLATH HJA THÀT NAVT NE DVA THAN MOT MÀN HIA THAT BIHALDA LÉTA. THAT IS NÉI FRYA HIS [25] TEX ÀND ET SKOLDE VNRJUCHT WÉSA TO VNTHANDANA THAT. 1. If our neighbors have a piece of land or water that appears to be useful for us, it is appropriate for us to ask them to sell it. If they refuse, we must let them keep it. That is according to Frya’s Tex and it would be unjust to take it from them.
2. SAHWERSA THÉR SWETHNATA ET SÉMNE KYVA ÀND SANA VR ENZE SÉKA THA VR LÁND ÀND HJA VS FRÉJA EN ORDÉL TO SPRÉKA. SA ACH MAN [30] THÀT RÉDER ÀFTER.WÉJA TO LÉTANE. TACH SA MAN THÉR NAVT BUTA NE KÀN. SA MOT MAN THÀT ÉRLIK ÀND RIUCHTFÉRDICH DVA. 2. If neighbors should quarrel among each other and enter into a dispute over some cause or piece of land and they ask us to make judgment, we rather ought to decline; but if they really need our help, we must provide it honorably and justly.
