Lewis-Gibson : Piyyuṭ


<p style='text-align: justify;'>Fragments from three piyyuṭim. The first is an alphabetic acrostic with the ט to ת strophes preserved: ‏[מלך טוב] ומטיב לכול פועל ואין כמוהו מלך. מלך יחיד יושב בשמים ואין כמוהו מלך. Of the second, only the first line is preserved at the bottom of f. 1v: מלך רחום שמו פארוהו. F. 2 contains strophes ט to ע of a piyyuṭ, presumably for Sukkot. The final phrase of each strophe contains a sequential citation from Leviticus 23:40–41, such that when these phrases are read together they give the full citation of the biblical text. Incipit: ביזכור שבעת הימים יום וליל לחלותך.</p>
