Notes:
Text breaks dentoted by a punctus.
Fol. 1 contains the last 5 strophes of a poem, whose refrain is [המהולל בפי כל נש[מה. Monorhymed –מה.Two verses per strophe (except for the last one which has one verse).
The remnant of the acrostic reads: נ]סי בן ברכיה] (=[Ni]ssi al-Nahrwani), so presumably only the first verse is missing here.
After three lines on the verso the writing ends, the rest of the page is blank.
Fol. 2 is from the end of the Mussaf service for Shavuot, in which only the part of the fourth blessing that is specific to Shavuot is recorded.
At the end of the text is an instruction in Judeo-Arabic to insert the ʻAzharah ראשית לעמך נתת.
The poetic text (fol. 1) is centered. In the prose folio (fol. 2), the left rule is justified by aligning the exceeding word between the lines.
