ge-sacan
In the passage ge-sécan seems a necessary emendation: ge-sacu. Against the emendation ge-saca it may be noted that the other nouns in the passage, beginning, hine wiht dweleð, ' represent things (ádl, yldo, inwitsorh), and a noun of the same lind seems more suitable than one denoting a person. If eówan could here be intransitive. like the compound æt-eówan, gesacu and ecghete would be parallel.
