Patriarkes and prophetes repreuethR.12.147: R's repreueth is unique; F has a different form of the
plural with repreven, while beta reads repreued(en).
Though two C copies affirm a present-tense verb here, it is obvious that
Cx agrees with beta's preterite. R's tense marking may not, however,
represent a difference of intention from beta's. Cf. the Introduction III.2.2.10. here science .
