1 Nephi 11:10 Textual Variants

Royal Skousen
and he saith unto me what [desireth 0|desirest 1ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRST] thou

Scribe 3 of 𝓞 wrote down “desireth thou” rather than the grammatically correct “desirest thou”. It is possible that the reading with the -eth ending was actually intended, although it is more probable that the scribe himself accidentally created this reading, perhaps under the influence of the preceding saith. For a complete discussion, see under 1 Nephi 11:2.
