...?...?...That fyre shal falle and berne  al to blo askesM.3.99-101: The extensive rewritings of M.3.99-101 are likely to have been prompted by the desire to re-spell, since there are no significant variants among B manuscripts. Most obviously, the yoghs have been altered to <y> in Yiftes or yeresyeues. The vowel of blo has also evidently been changed.
