Note to Anon Lil 36VII

[5-6]: The construction + pres. part. is used to express elapsed time. See NS §229 Anm. 2, for analogous examples. The same formula appears in 68/1-2. This st. is corrupt in the ms. tradition, which has likely been influenced by st. 68. The reading given here seems most probable: forty is the number of days between Christmas and the Presentation. Only one late ms. supports the reading fjórum, although eds and translators since Páll Hallsson have adopted it (Páll Hallsson 1773, 20; Finnur Jónsson 1772-8, II, 416; Eiríkur Magnússon 1870, 37; Baumgartner 1884, 51; Wisén 1886-9, I, 92; Skj B; Paasche 1915, 64; Åkerblom 1916, 19; Meissner 1922, 15; Skald; Guðbrandur Jónsson 1951, 84 and 165; Lange 1958b, 63; Einar Bragi 1961; Boucher 1985, 2-10; Gunnar Finnbogason 1988, 49; Ødegård 1980, 49; Taillé 1989, 72).
