- Hebrew lead phrase is signified by spaces of varying width before and after; left rule is occasionally filled with with a semi-alef; In the style of the Karaites, the author presents a verse of Bible in Arabic (with lead phrase in Hebrew) translates it, and expounds on it at length, mostly philological notes; fol. 1 contains such notes on IV 20-26; Fol. 2 contains notes on IV 31-V 2; text does not match the translation-commentary of the Karaite Yapheth ben Ali, nor that of Judah ibn Bal'am; The format and style are comparable to that of the bifolium in Oxford Bodleian Heb. d. 56 (Cowely 2629, 5) on Jeremiah II-III (in a different hand).
