Is it related to the PIE root *steh₂-? As in "to stand"
At kveldi skal dag lęyfa,
Konu es bręnnd es,
Mæki es ręyndr es,
Męy es gefin es,
Ís es yfir kømr,
Ǫl es drukkit es.

Sorry, but I can't; I don't have any Germlang readily available.

The last part of the word probably stems from PG *dōmaz, meaning judgment.
