- Text breaks are signified by spaces of various width; The commentary is extensive, covering each verse of scripture; biblical phrases (not necessarily lead words) are cited, with the introduction [וקו[ל, so the the work does not function as a translation; rather, it is a running summary, embellished with exegetical and philological comments, based heavily on Biblical comparison, characteristic of Samuel ben Ḥofni's Commentary on Pentateuch (ed. Aaron Greenbaum, 1979); The fragment contains the essay on XXXI 50-53, signed תם קאל. This is followed by the translation of ibid. 54-XXXII 2, and the beginning of the essay on this paragraph.
