sektar ‘of guilt’

sekð (noun f.; °-ar; -ir): guilt < sekðarfullr (adj.)

[2] sektarfullr: syndafullr 721

notes

[2] sektarfullr ‘full of guilt’: The ms. reading, syndafullr ‘sinful’, leaves the l. without internal rhyme, and appears to be a lectio facilior.

Close

fullr ‘full’

2. fullr (adj.; °compar. -ari, superl. -astr): full, complete < sekðarfullr (adj.)

[2] sektarfullr: syndafullr 721

notes

kafa ‘the plunging’

kaf (noun n.; °; *-): deep sea < kafadjúp (noun n.)

notes

[3] kafadjúp ‘the plunging depths’: This is an acc. of place. Finnur thought he could read an ‘i’ above the ‘k’ and adds the prep. í ‘into’ (‘he sank into the depth’; so also Skald). However, no ‘i’ can be discerned in 721.

djúp ‘depths’

djúp (noun n.; °-s; dat. -um): depth, the deep < kafadjúp (noun n.)

notes

[3] kafadjúp ‘the plunging depths’: This is an acc. of place. Finnur thought he could read an ‘i’ above the ‘k’ and adds the prep. í ‘into’ (‘he sank into the depth’; so also Skald). However, no ‘i’ can be discerned in 721.

tr ‘sees’

líta (verb): look, see; appear

[5] tr: líðr 721

notes
