hugat môlum ‘conscientiously ... arrangements’: Hugat is here read as a n. p. p., used adverbially: cf. the adverbial rétt ‘precisely’ in l. 3. It is tempting to read these two words, with Konráð Gíslason (1860b, 333 n. 1), as a cpd equivalent to hugaðsmôlum. Finnur Jónsson (Skj B) actually supplies the latter form (spelt hugaz-môlum), assigning it the meaning fortroliger aftaler ‘confidential arrangements’, but there is no ms. support for making the first constituent gen. Cf. Noreen (1923, 41), and Sahlgren (1927-8, I, 177-8).
