Gamlkan Has 15VII/5 — minna ‘my’

Hétk opt fyr lið láta
lasta verk til fasta
þér, en þekkjask dýrar,
þeyláðs konungr, dáðir.
Enn snørumk ey til minna
aptr, landreki krapta,
(esa vanði sá) synða
(sjaldreyndr kyni aldar).

Hétk þér opt til fasta láta lasta verk fyr lið, en þekkjask dýrar dáðir, konungr þeyláðs. Enn snørumk ey aptr til minna synða, landreki krapta; sá vanði esa sjaldreyndr kyni aldar.

I often promised you firmly to lay sinful acts [lit. acts of vices] aside and be content with good deeds, king of the thawing wind’s land [SKY/HEAVEN > = God]. I always again turned back to my sins, land-governor of powers [= God]; that custom is not infrequently tested by the kinsfolk of men [MANKIND].
