suht
e; f. Sickness Him yldo ne derede ne suht swáre, Cd. Th. 30, 24; Gen. 472. [This, the only instance of the use of the word, may be due to Old Saxon influence; see the Héliand where the word occurs many times, in two of them with the same adjective as in the passage. The word is however widely spread: Goth. sauhts: O. L. Ger. suht morbus: O. H. Ger. suht morbus, tabes: Ger. sucht: Icel. sótt sickness: sút affliction: Dan. Swed. sot. It is found in the Cursor Mundi: Þai troud þat he moght þair broþer (Lazarus) hale of all his soght (miȝte make him hool to be, Trin. MS.), 14157; and Halliwell quotes a passage in which jaundice is called ȝalow souȝt, Dict. 950.]
