Note to SnH Lv 5II

[8] send heill ‘thanks for the helping’: Lit. ‘good luck with the giving’. This is difficult to render in idiomatic Engl., and the present translation follows that of Andersson and Gade 2000. Skj B translates it as hav tak for sendelsen lit. ‘have thanks for the sending’, and LP: heill 3 gives send, giv, som den lykkelige, gid du må få alt godt for din gave ‘send, give, as the fortunate one, may you get everything good [in return] for your gift’.
