Origin & History of “sag”

there are several Scandinavian verbs that bear a strong resemblance to sag, including Swedish sacka and Danish sakke, and it seems likely that one of these was borrowed into middle Low German as sacken ‘settle, subside’, and subsequently found its way into English as sag (whose original meaning was ‘subside’)
