Fol. 14:

Two kneeling men are depicted in the lower margin, praying to God with joined hands, illustrating the text: "And we cried unto the Lord the God of our fathers and the Lord heard our voice and saw our affliction…" (based on Deut. 26:7). A paraphrase of the same text is inscribed within a scroll, between the two men:

".צעקו אל אלהי אבותם/ וישמע את שוועתם"

"They cried to God of their fathers, and He heard their cry."

In the outer margin, crowned Pharaoh is sitting naked in a bathtub, possibly full with blood. Below, an Egyptian is carrying the corpses of children (badly damaged). Inscribed above Pharaoh:

"מלך מצרים נצטרע/ ויוסף עוד להרע."

"The king of Egypt became leprous, and he became even more evil" (based on Ex. Rabbah (Vilna), 1:34; Targum Jonathan to Ex. 2:23). 

Above the Egyptian is inscribed:

"ציוה המלך לשחוט את הזכרים/ ולרחוץ בדמם האיברים."

"The king ordered the males to be slaughtered, and his limbs to be washed in their blood" (based on Ex. Rabbah (Vilna), 1:34; Targum Jonathan to Ex. 2:23).
