Three poems of the Tsiduḳ ha-din type, sporadically vocalized, probably all are by Joseph ben Abitur.
A. (fol. 1) 22 strophes (ז-ר), four verses each, the last of which is from the biblical theme, Ecclesiastes XII 1-7. The refrain starts with סוף; listed among Tsiduḳe ha-din of Abitur, by E. Fleischer, (Yetsirato shel Yosef ben Abitur / Ezra Fleischer (Doctoral dissertation). Jerusalem : Hebrew University, 1968, p. 546) with a parallel ms. source, Cambridge TS K8.17, which reached the end of the poem סוער לרגעים וישכח רבה.
B. (fol. 2) another poem of this type, in same scheme. The acrostic signature in the final two strophes reads יושף.
C. (fol. 2v) On line 22, first line of a third poem of this type, אנוש אני פתע ישבר.
