- 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 Sa`adia 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 Sa`adia's short commentary on this Psalm (published edition, Y. Kafaḥ: Tehilim ; 'im targum ṿe-perush ha-Gaʾon Seʻadyah ben Yosef Fayumi / tirgem le-'Ivrit ... Yosef Kafaḥ. Jerusalem, 1966, p. 64) his reference : גיתית־ואלאמר פיה כמא שרחנא, could possibly be alluding to this essay.
