Thurneysen, ZCP xviii 373 - 4 takes the meaning in these
passages to belit.'too high' ( beyond capacity ,cf.also
uais no urgairt no egmacht, Laws iv 58.5 , where the transl.
30`poverty' seems doubtful. See3 úais).cis lir uais athga-

40 O'Dav. 112 . ("`uais' is therefore the condition of one who
though he has no property himself has the expectation of
obtaining something from others ; whereas `angbocht'
is the state of one who neither has nor expects anything,"
Plummer, MS. Notes).fri huais ngortae no nóina for

a special application of2 úais.
