Hebrew. Hebrew Oriental semi-square vocalization (Tiberian).
As in Yemenite vocalization, the segol is occasionally replaced by a pataḥ; strophe endings denoted with different graphic signs.
Four folios from a small booklet of piyyutim in the Seliḥot format, in which each piyyut is followed by the recitation of the 13 attributes, alluded to by its heading אל מלך. The first three lines of fol. 1 are faded and illegible, written in a more cursive hand the rest, possibly instructions.
(fols. 1-2) The content starts with אז בעזבי מקרא דת (Davidson, Thesaurus of Medieval Hebrew poetry. New York : JTS, 1924, 2111א) which appears in R. Saʻadia Gaon's Kitab gamiʹ altsalaṿat ṿaʾaltasabih as the first of two Seliḥot for the Tenth of Tevet (Sidur Rav Seʹadyah Gaon / Israel Davidson [ed.]. Jerusalem : Meḳitse nirdamim, 1963, p. 335).
The second half (verses מ-ת), after a graphic sign and three spaces, differs completely from the printed edition.
This version appears elsewhere in the Genizah: Cambridge TS 10J 11.24; Misc. 24.75; NS 103.62; NS 110.110; NS 116.32; K25.27; Oxford Heb. e. 25 (Cowely 2701); New York JTSA ENA 2676, 10.
