Marking Psalm 116, a multi-colored bird with a leaf tail hovers between the first and second textcolumns. A foliate stem emerges from its raised beak. The stem incorporates a vessel and encloses the psalm number. A bird with its neck caught in a jar is set vertically within a foliate stem between the second and third text columns. The bird marks the beginning of Psalm 117 and possibly relates to verse 3 of Psalm 116 which reads, אפפוני חבלי-מות ומצרי שאול מצאוני, "The sorrows of death compassed me and the pains of hell got hold of me." Alternatively, the bird may relate to verse 16 of Psalm 116 which reads, אני עבדך בן אמתך פתחת למוסרי, "I am thy servant and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds."
