Daʾūd (Ḥayyūj). The colophon is followed by a chapter on the substitution of letters. Leaf 2: Sefer Oḵla we-Oḵla: the folio preserves part of list 60 (according to Díaz Esteban’s edition of the Halle manuscript (Díaz Esteban, 1975: 104-105). The list consists of an alphabetical presentation of words occurring twice in the biblical text, where the word has a different sense in each occurrence.
