but our lorde had hym lyghtlyche oute so leuve I þe theffe yn heyuvenG.13.213: The line is too long and wraps around. The last two words are written underneath the rest of the line and are boxed
in grey ink.
Þat oure lord ne hadde hym liȝtlich out . so leue I þe þeef be in heuene
Þat oure lorde ne hadde hym liȝtliche oute
so leue I þe be in heuene .R.12.213: Alpha was clearly missing the key word of the b-verse,
thef, a fact which F, as is his custom, attempts to cover over (so leve y it be in hevene). Beta reads this b-verse precisely as does R, with
one addition: so leue I þe thef be in heuene.
Þat crist hadde hym lyghtly owt / so leve y it be in heveneF.9.328: Alpha had omitted thief, and F revised to make sense of what he found. Beta witnesses read "so leue I þe þef be in heuene."
