About 誼, one would expect yi4 in Mandarin. Homophones with 誼 in Middle Chinese are all yi4 in Standard Mandarin.

擊, looks pretty random, but ji2 would be what I would expect out of ji2 and ji1.

期, one would expect qi2.

企, one would expect both qi4 and qi3, but more likely qi4.

灸, one would expect jiu4 and jiu3. No support for jiu1.

肖, one would expect xiao4.

跌, one would expect die2.

鄙, one would expect bi3.
