Havamal Snippets 118: Beware of the bad woman and her deceit-crafty tongue

Lying women are harmful to good men, be they in the courts during a divorce, or slander to friends and family.  The Androsphere/Manosphere is replete with tales of men who have suffered from the lying words of a poison-tongued woman.

Ofarla bíta
ek sá einum hal
orð illrar konu;
fláráð tunga
varð honum at fjörlagi
ok þeygi um sanna sök     
[2] I saw a man
[1] deeply bitten
by the word of a bad woman;
her deceit-crafty tongue
was the death of him,
and yet the charge was not true.
