And maken hymR.6.69:
Beta reads hem here, but both Ax and Cx agree with alpha's hym. merie þeremyde
maugre ho-so it be-grucche .R.6.69: Beta transposes the final phrase as bigruccheth it. This word order parallels that found in the X family of C (the P family omits it completely, as do several of
the less authoritative copies in the B tradition). However, the A witnesses strongly support alpha's phrasing at this point.
