Two rectangular initial word panels framed by a black fillet border are set within the text space. The first, in the center right of the text space, encloses the initial word of Psalm 150, הללויה, "Praise the Lord," which is part of the daily morning prayers. The initial word is written in burnished gold letters against the parchment ground, surrounded by three sections colored blue, magenta and green decorated with white tracery. Attached to the right side of the panel, within the outer margin, is an inverted triangle executed in gold with a toothed border, filled with interlace interspersed with green, blue and magenta dots. The second panel, at the bottom right of the text space encloses the initial word, ויברך, "And he blessed," continuing the morning prayers. The word is written in gold on the parchment ground and is surrounded by three colored sections. An additional gold frame within the black fillet border surrounds the sections. Extending from the right side of the panel into the outer margin, is a green flowering stem from which issue floral scrolls, apparently executed by a later hand.
