Saʿadya Gaʾon


<p style='text-align: justify;'>Qinot for the Ninth of Av, from Siddur Saʿadya Gaʾon. F. 1r (incipit: חשך ואפלה - end of the צ strophe) contains the latter part of the qina איליל הה ליום המפרק גדילים, followed by אבוי לירח חמישי, which continues onto f. 1v. F.1v continues with אויה לי כי נלטשו נסכנות, up to the beginning of the צ strophe. F. 2r contains the last part of אני הגבר מנעורי (from the end of the ע strophe onwards), followed by איכה רחובות עיר, which continues onto f. 2v. F. 2v ends with the first few lines of זכור תבוסת צאן טבחה (up to midway through the ר strophe). The text contains a few variants (usually spelling) when compared to Davidson’s edition of Saʿadya's Siddur.</p>
