And folowed þat the fende taught & hys felowes wyll
And folowed þ(a)t the fende tauȝt · and hise felawes wille

choice also attested by a select group of the C manuscripts
& folwede þat þe fend hym tolde / & hise feerys wille.F.14.201: Alpha omitted the following line from Bx: "Ayeins Reson and (or I) rightwisnesse recorde þus wiþ truþe."
