A tall executioner, clad in purple and raising a large sword, holds the young Moses by the hair.
ביד הקוסטנר נמסר משה
ונעש' צוארו כאבן שיש הקשה
“Moses was delivered into the hand(s) of the executioner but his neck became as hard as marble.”
Below, Moses is depicted, wearing a traveller’s tunic and carrying a lance over his shoulder, walking in a field, preceded by his sheep.
ויהי כאשר נמלט מחרב התליין
ברח משה אל ארץ מדיין
“And when he escaped from the sword of the executioner, Moses fled to the land of Midian(≠ Ex. 2:15).
