The full passage in Bl. H. is: Medmycel ǽrende wé þyder habbað, and ús is þearf wé hit þéh gefyllon we have an unimportant errand thither, and we must however carry it out, 233, 11. The poem seems to support the idea contained in nédmicel, that of urgency: Úsic lust hweteð on þá leódmearce micel módes hiht, An. 286. In support, too, of nédmicel is the accent in the MS. Moreover St. Andrew would hardly have spoken of his mission as unimportant.
