Note to Sigv Lv 7I

[7] þinnar ‘your’: Under the interpretation above, this separates þvít ‘because’ from the clause it introduces. To simplify the word order, Kock (NN §673) construes the word with til borinn / tilborinn (l. 8), which gives the meaning ‘born to yours’, ‘born to the kingdom you possess’, with þinnar referring back to jarðar ‘land, territory’.
