 gerðusk ‘became’: The pl. subject is allar áttir Ingvi-Freys ‘all the kin of Ingvi-Freyr [GODS]’ (ll. 5-6) and the complement gamlar ok hárar ‘old and grey’ (ll. 7, 8). Another possibility is to understand gerðusk at þingi in the sense ‘[all the kin of Ingvi-Freyr, old and grey,] set about/organised an assembly’. As it stands, l. 5 lacks a hending and this prompted Finnur Jónsson (Skj B) to emend to gættusk ‘they paid attention, deliberated’ and Kock (Skald; NN §3039) to emend to mœttusk ‘they met’. There is no ms. support for either emendation.
