Middle English question

Been reading a book that quotes extensively from Julian of Norwich...in the original Middle English. Usually I can understand it, but sometimes I can't figure out a word. What do "anemptys" and "behovyd" mean? The latter I thought was "behooved" but didn't make sense in the context. I tried Wiktionary, which worked for another Middle English word I couldn't figure out myself, but these two were not in there.
