Scholarly Commentary


This is the earliest manuscript that survives.

Textual History: Revision

The manuscript shows a line drawn across the text from the word “lurks” (line 7). The line ends at the bottom of the manuscript. According to Paull Baum, an alternate reading “shroud” was scripted in the manuscript, but the document no longer shows that word.
