From a prayer book. Fol. 1, partially vocalized, is from the beginning of Birkhot ha-shaḥar, including אלהי נשמה, morning blessing 16, and the beginning of לעולם יהא אדם (Midrash Tana deṿe Eliyahu 22) as in Sidur R. ʹAmram Gaʼon.
The blessings include some uncommon ones, in addition to the basic 11 (Talmud Berakhot 60b).
The first two, מעיר ישנים and מקיץ רדומים are signed for erasure, הנותן לשכוי בינה is tenth,עוטר ישראל is omitted (as is הנותן ליעף כח, consistent with the Oriental custom).
After the standard series שלא שמתני (as in Sidur R. Seʹadyah Gaʹon) גוי-עבד-אשה (ibid. Menaḥot 43b) are added added שלא שמתני בהמה and שלא שמתני מאומות העולם אלא מעמך ישראל. Both are encircled for erasure.
Fol. 2 is from the common assembled Psalms at the beginning of Pesuḳe de-zimrah (Psalm CV 1-15 and other excerpts).
