Notes:
Contains the article on the beginning of Psalm VIII, with an extensive detail on the term למנצח. On verse 3 there is reference to the Tafsir of the fifth paragraph (ה) of Psalm CIX.
The style, terminology and intensive structure is similar to Saʻadia Gaon's Essays on the first four Psalms (published by Simon Eppenstein, Festscrhift zu ehren des Dr. A. Harkavy : aus anlass seines 70. lebenjahres / David Günzurg [ed]. St. Petersburg, 1908, p. 152-160).
In Saʻadia's short commentary on this Psalm (published edition, Y. Kafaḥ: Tehilim ; ʻim targum ṿe-perush ha-Gaʾon Seʻadyah ben Yosef Fayumi / tirgem le-ʻIvrit ... Yosef Kafaḥ. Jerusalem, 1966, p. 64) his reference : גיתית־ואלאמר פיה כמא שרחנא, could possibly be alluding to this essay.
