Cairo Genizah : Masora

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Masoretic notes, apparently from the Tiberian tradition. F. 1r: Micah 3:11-5:3; f. 1v: Micah 6:1-7:3; f. 2r: Micah 7:10-20, Nahum 1:1-11; f. 2v: Nahum 2:4-3:7. The notes are divided according to the parašiyyot in the biblical text. A setuma is marked with a mid-line space; a petuḥa is marked by continuing the text on a new line. Each new paraša is noted with a short lemma from the opening words of the biblical text, whether or not a masoretic note is attached thereto. Both masora parva and masora magna notes are recorded. The text appears to be in some disarray, and occasionally the notes contradict those found in NLR Evr. I B19a (the Leningrad Codex). On f. 1r at Micah 4:5 an ornate seder marker has been written in the margin. On f. 1v the midway point of the book has been marked with the ornate marginal note חצי הספ׳ at Micah 6:1. Apparently this has been copied incorrectly from the Vorlage - the note belongs in the same position on the page, but on f. 1r rather than f. 1v.</p>
