Thanks, that makes more sense.  I was thinking *{muHmeychaj Suq} could mean something like “obtain their deaths (by execution)” vs. accidental deaths / deaths by illness / death from old age, etc.  The version at kag.org that I use lacks much of the English text so typos aren’t always obvious.

Evidence of a homophonous noun {muH} "execution" ?

I think it's more likely to be evidence of a typo. The line is:

molor luSuvmeH
     nuHmeychaj Suq
     'e' tlhob qeylIS
To tell them that Kahless asks them
     To take up their arms,
     And fight against Molor
