launið ‘you reward’

[3] launið: launi 713

notes

[3] launið (2nd pers. pl. pres. subj.) ‘you reward’: Launi (3rd pers. sg./pl. pres. subj.) ‘reward’ (so 713) is ungrammatical because the verb has a 2nd pers. pl. subject (ykkr bæði ‘you both’; see NS §70).

mig ‘me’

ek (pron.; °mín, dat. mér, acc. mik): I, me

notes

[5] mig ‘me’: The pron. is written above the l. in 713, and Skj B emends to þá ‘then’, with sál mína ‘my soul’ (l. 8) as the only object of leittu ‘lead’ (l. 5). Skald omits the pron. altogether and inserts the excrescent -u- in ítr (i.e. ítur ‘splendid’). The present edn follows Wrightson.
