es; m. I. struggle, fight, contest Strange geneátas ða ne willaþ mé æt ðam stríðe geswícan, Cd. Th. 19, i; Gen. 284. II. contention, dispute, strife of words Hwæt scal ðé swá láðlíc stríð wið ðínes hearran bodan? 41, 28; Gen. 663. Ðone láðan stríð, yfel and-wyrde, 36, 16; Gen. 572. [The word seems to occur only in that part of the Genesis which is supposed to be derived from an Old Saxon original, and to be a form borrowed from Old Saxon stríd. In the Liber Scintillarum stríþlíce glosses districte, 132, 9, and stríðnysse glosses districtionis, 123, 18; but these may be explained as errors for stíþlíce, stíðnysse: the nominative of the latter glossing districtio occurs 123, 9.]
