Does the ng derive from nasalization on a vowel in Proto-Germanic?

So it's the 1st person plural present active indicative form of a verb? Maybe that's the only possibility, but I want to check just to be safe.

-amaz is the the dative plural of the noun. I'm confused as to what this means, unless you missed this:

Ah, I did indeed miss that. Or at least, if I saw it, I'd forgotten about it.

Is this (ybbæŋ) a masculine noun?
