I dyke and delue and do that truth hoteth
I dike and delue · I do þat treuthe hotes
I dike and I delue I do þat heR.5.565:
Beta reads treuthe for alpha's he. hoteth .
& boþe diggid & deluyd / & dyde þat he me comaundide. F.5.558: F's me comaundid is unique.
Bx reads hoteþ. F omits the following lines from Bx:
Som tyme I sowe and some tyme I þresshe
In taillours craft and tynkeris craft what truþe kan deuyse
I weue and I wynde and do what truþe hoteþ.
The error had occurred before the immediate scribe's stint, since it was the result of eye-skip from Bx's hoteþ in 5.558. That had to have occurred before the substitution of comaundide for hoteþ.
