Shema. -- Selections.
Judaism -- Liturgy -- Texts.

Hebrew. Hebrew Oriental semi-square vocalization (Tiberian).
Notes:
One marginal addition of a missing word, probably in the hand of the original scribe.
The vocalization reflects, at some points, the phonetic character of Yemenite vocalization, where pataḥ is used for segol, e.g.: וַעַד.
The folio includes most of the second Blessing of the Shemaʹ sequence אהבת עולם. The reading is similar to that in Sidur Rav Seʹadyah Gaʾon, 'ed. Davidson et al. 1963, p.14, but toward the end there is much expansion, close to that which is found in the Siddur of Solomon of Sujulmassa (in the published edition, from ms. Oxford Bodleian 899, S. Croizer, 1995, pp. 12-13).
