A. (fols. 1-2) The last 7 strophes (ע-ת) of R. Saadia's Gaon's Tokhaḥah אם לפי בחרך (Thesaurus of Medieval Hebrew Poetry / Israel Davidson. New York : JTSA, 1924, 5390; Sidur Rav Seʹadyah Gaʾon / Israel Davidson ... [et al.]. Jersu. Jerusalem : Shocken, 1964 p. 65).
The fragment starts in the second verse of strophe ע (ibid. l. 62). From the same ms. verses ב-ו are found in the second folio of Oxford Bodleian Heb. e. 73 fol. 38 (Cowely 2827, 14). Followed by the Ṿidui.
B. (fol. 2) the Seliḥah האמונה אבדה ממנו, alphabetically arranged short verses, 7-10 syllables per verse. Followed by another Ṿidui.
C. (fols. 2-4) Under the heading חטאנו צורינו (the refrain), all of אין לנו כהן גדול (strophes א-ת) which is the last segment of the ʻAvodah attributed to Yose ben Yose that starts אספר גדולות (Davidson, TMHP 6965; published by Mirsky: Piyuṭe Yose ben Yose / Aaron Mirsky [ed.]. Jersualem : Bialik 1991, p. 203-216, this segment, ibid. pp. 210-216).
This is followed by the common prayer prose from the end of the Seliḥot for Yom Kippur הידועות והשגגות אתה מכיר.
D. (End of fol. 4- 5) Under the heading סדר פיסוקין, The piyyut stationed at the end of the Seliḥot in which biblical verses are interspersed between the poetic verses. Here there are six such verses (א-מ), two letters per verse.
Starts אשמנו במעשינו אשר לא כדת (see Menaḥem Zulay: ʾAle ʾayin = The Salman Schocken Jubilee Volume, 1952, p. 91). This and the subsequent Seliḥot are followed by an allusion to the recitation of the 13 attributes אל מלך as is the standard structure of the
E. An allusion to the next piyyut [אנשי אמונה [אבדו(TMHP 6850א; Sidur Rav Seʹadyah Gaʾon, p. 303-304), which was apparently well-known enough that it need not be copied.
F-G. (fols. 5-6) A variation of the previous Seliḥah, אנשי אמונה נעלמו מדורות (TMHP 6854א) followed y תפן להקשיב ממעונים (TMHP ת 480). These two Seliḥot are arranged as a pair in this order in Sidur Rav Seʹadyah Gaʾon, p. 290-291 as their verses are ordered א-ת and then ת-א.
H. (fol. 6) The first 20 verses (א-ר) of אשחר תשותך (TMHP א 7888), which is also in Sidur Rav Seʹadyah Gaʾon (p. 294-, the fragment ends at line 20 there).
