Þat I ne wolde make and amende  it with of myne . These two lines are offered by alpha instead of eleven lines preserved in beta (= KD3.52-62); it appears that the beta passage is archetypal but was somehow overlooked or unavailable to alpha and that the two lines in their stead were introduced to patch the resulting incoherence, adapted from two cognate lines in A (= Kane 3.50-51). Beta's cognate lines are as follows:
Wist I that quod þat womman I wolde nouȝt spare
For to be ȝowre frende frere and faille ȝow neure
Whil ȝe loue lordes þat lechery haunteþ
And lakkeþ nouȝt ladis þat loueþ wel þe same
It is a frelete of flesche ȝe fynde it in bokes
And a course of kynde wher-of we komen alle
Who may scape þe sklaundre þe skaþe is sone amended
It is synne of seuene sonnest relessed
Haue mercy quod Mede of men þat it haunte
And I shal keure ȝowre kirke ȝowre cloystre do maken
Wowes do whitten and wyndowes glasen
And my name writeopenliche þere-Inne .
Þat yy [ne] wolde do mende it / or make it at þe fulle.
