In the right and lower margins, next to the prayer of the burning of leaven, are three consecutive illustrations. On top is a man holding a bunch of feathers and a bowl. Inscribed:
"בודק בכל פינה בבית וכל מעונה/ בראשון מברך באומץ על ביעור חמץ."
"One searches in every corner, in the house and the whole dwelling. First one boldly recites the blessing for the burning of the leaven."
Below is a man hiding a bowl of leaven in a large pot in order to protect it from the mice, two of which appear at his feet, while a third mouse is being eaten by a cat. Inscribed above:
"טומנין החמץ והבר/ פן יגרר בו העכבר."
"One hides the leaven and the grain, lest the mouse drag it away."
Below the cat is an additional inscription:
"הנני נושך בעכבר/ פן יאכל את הבר."
"Behold, I bite the mouse, lest he eat the grain."
In the lower margin is a man about to throw leaven from a bowl into the fire. Inscribed:
"למחר שורפין ותולין/ וכל אחד בלבו מבטלין."
"On the morrow one burns (the leaven; Pesahim 2:1; B.T. Pesahim 5 b), and delays (what is left) and each one annuls it in his heart."
