For he þat ȝiueth ȝeldeth · and ȝarketh hym to reste
For heM.7.87: M's original reading without he agreed with Cot. þat ȝyeueþ ȝyeldeþ and ȝyarkeþ him to reste .
For he that geueth yeldeth and yarketh hym to rest
For he þat gyues yeldes · and yarkes hym to reste
for he that gyuvythe yeldethe & yarkythe hym to rest
F reads the opening of this a-verse as For þe man þat ȝifte; beta has
For he þat ȝiueth. It seems clear from these overlapping agreements
that R is responsible uniquely for omitting þat, that F replaces
archetypal he with þe man, and that the ȝifte / ȝiueth dichotomy reflects an alpha / beta
difference. ȝeldeth and ȝarketh hym to reste .
For þe man þat ȝifte ȝeviþ / he ȝarkiþ his sowle reste.F.5.1071: F extensively revises the line. Beta reads "For he þat yeueþ yeldeþ and yarkeþ hym to reste." Alpha has the noun
ȝifte in place of beta's yeueþ.
