Unboxome and bold to breake the ten hestes
Vnbuxom and bolde · to breke the ten hestes
Bold and vnbuxumR.2.44:
In beta, the phrasal order of this a-verse is reversed: Vnbuxome and
bolde. The beta rendering is, however, the presumptive original since it matches the
order found in C. to breke þe ten hestes .
& to be bold & vn-buxumF.3.84: Alpha is responsible for the word order "bold & vn-buxum." Beta witnesses read "vnbuxome and bolde." / to breke þe ten hestys.
