Note to Anon Lil 39VII

[8] eg em duldr, því að ferr af huldu ‘I am ignorant, because it is being kept secret’: Bb’s reading requires duldr to be understood without an object. Skj B and Skald prefer the reading of 622 and several other mss: duldr em ek þess, þat ferr af huldu ‘it is hidden from me [and] takes place in secret’.
