v ā. afflicts, injures (cf. 1 ong)? onga[i]m `I wound or sear', ongadh .i. gonadh `a wounding', P. O'C. ong .i. brón. . . . ut dicitur: ni rongad (.i. ni tainic) foichedh cose | i temel cach ongthae .i. faitech cach foichedach, H. 3.18 p. 73 ( O'C. 117 ). Acc. to the gloss, the second line of the citation should mean every afflicted person is in darkness (doubt, suspicion); in the first line we should perh. read: nir ongad = no tribulation was a (real) affliction (injury) up to (compared with) this; the gloss may have been suggested by the gl. ong .i. tadall (see 1 ong). Cf. also: ongtha .i. athghonta wounded, O'Cl. ongtha `wounded or re-wounded', P. O'C.
