Herv Lv 18VIII (Heiðr 44) l. 5

ræki — care


rœkja (verb): care, look after


[5] ræki ek: so 2845, R715ˣ, hræðumz Hb


[5] ek ræki ‘I care’: Mss 2845 and R715ˣ are in agreement on this reading, similarly preferred by Skj B and Skald, against Hb’s hræðumz ‘I fear’, which also gives good sense. Either reading is possible metrically.
