Is It Mutar To Shave-Part II

The Tur (O.Ch. 581) quotes the Midrash .
"The Minhag of the world is when a person has a court case, he dresses
in black ,wraps himself in black and grows his beard etc.
The Bnei Yisroel are different. They dress in white they wrap
 themselves in white  and shave their beards. ומגלחין זקנם) )*

This Midrash also appears in the Yerushalmi (R.H. Perek 1 Hl. 3)
On the bottom of the page there is A Pirush called Chidushim
He writes that in Yalkut  Pr .Voeschanan and in Tehilim 148 the
Girsa is  מגלחין את שערם (they shave their heads)
In the Cairo Geniza (pages of the Yerushalmi)
page 146 has our Girsa is                                                                                             ומגלחין  זקנם
