20 Description

Fol. 9:

A standing bearded man making an explanatory gesture with his hand illustrates the text in the lower part of the page, relating to the Four Sons, inscribed:

"חכם אחד מארבעה בנים/ שואל בהלכות הפסח ודבריו כנים."

"The wise son, one of the Four Sons, asks about the Passover laws, and his words are true."


In the lower margin is Pharaoh sitting at a table with his crowned daughter and a magician. On his left, the young Moses is holding the crown, just taken off Pharaoh's head (Ex. Rabbah (Vilna), 1:26). To the left is a rampant cheetah.

The inscription near Pharaoh reads:

"הנער משה לעיני החרטומי'(ם) והשרים/ הכתר מעל ראש המלך הרים."

"The boy Moses, in front of the magicians and the councilors, took the crown off Pharaoh's head."

Next to the magician, is inscribed an additional inscription:

"אמר בלעם הקוסם ובעלי נחשים/ הנער המלוכ'(ה) על ראשו ישים."

"Balaam (Num. 22) the sorcerer and the magicians said: 'the boy will put the kingdom on his head'" (based on Divrei Hayamim shel Moshe Rabeinu, Beit Hamidrash (Jelinek, 1938), pp. 3-4).
