already by Cormac connected with the Welsh formula

35planation given in Colgan's Trias Thaum. p. 53 and 59 is
due to misunderstanding of the passage in Arm. 7 a 2 ( Trip.
292. 26 ). (f) understood asdegbriathar, Acall. 6648

The rhymes withmenmanandcelebrad(v. supra) do not
40necessarily prove original short -e-.Débroth thedoomof
God would be an ordinary cpd. ofdiaandbráth(u- stem),
the latter passing into-brothin enclisis asscáth>scud
(foscud,d sg.),gním>gnom.Mo d. ¤ ,dar mo d. ¤ by the doom
that God will pass on me on the day of Judgment
. It seems
45the Irish equivalent of W.`min doiu braut,'not an adapta-
tion of it. In `mo d. ¤ ,'debrothis probably thedative.
