Anon Mv III 5VII l. 2

fár — danger


2. fár (noun n.; °-s): harm, danger < hugarfár (noun n.)



[2]: The reading of the l. cannot be restored. After sárum (m. dat. pl.) ‘with hurts, with bitternesses’ a word is erased and illegible. — [2] hugarfár (n. nom. or acc. sg. or pl.) ‘the mind-danger’: This is most likely the subject of the defective cl., and the missing word must be the verb. Skald supplies óx ‘grew’ (see NN §2872) and Sperber gives sárt var þat hugar fár ‘bitter was that danger of the mind’. Neither reading is supported by the mss.
