Gamlkan Has 58VII/2 — kyns ‘of the kinsfolk’

Hvar megim oss, inn ǫrvi
ýta kyns, fyr synðir
sôr eða sekðir órar,
sættir, skjóls of vætta,
nema lastauknum líkna,
logskríns, vilir þínum
sjalfr, þeims synðir skelfa,
sæll gervandi, þræli?

Hvar megim of vætta oss skjóls fyr synðir, sôr eða sekðir órar, inn ǫrvi sættir kyns ýta, nema vilir sjalfr líkna þínum lastauknum þræli, þeims synðir skelfa, sæll gervandi logskríns?.

Where may we expect shelter because of our sins, griefs or guilts, generous reconciler of the kinsfolk of men [HUMANS > = God], unless you yourself desire to have mercy on your sin-laden servant, whom sins cause to tremble, blessed creator of the flame-shrine [SKY/HEAVEN > = God]?


[2] ýta kyns: ‘y[...]yns’ B, ‘ýṭạ kyns’ 399a‑bˣ



case: gen.
