      Lev. 19, 14.
[The word, like scrimman, q. v., seems to suggest comparison with forms in mp. Cf. Icel. skreppa; p. skrapp to slip; the causative of this verb might appear in English as scrempan, whose meaning would be that given to scremman. Scrincan, screncan are parallel, as regards meaning, to scrimman, scremman.]
