Along the outer margin is a man throwing a naked infant from a crenellated tower into the water. Another infant is falling, while a third one is swallowed by a fish. The depiction illustrates the passage written at the end of the previous page: "And we cried unto the Lord… and the Lord heard… our toil, which is the sons. As it was said: "Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river and every daughter ye shall save alive…" (Ex. 1:22).
"בציווי מלך מצרימה (!)/ להשליך כל הזכרי'(ם) למימה(!".(
"(It was) the order of the king of Egypt to throw all male children into the water" (a paraphrase to Ex. 1:22).
The second illustration of Moses and Aaron depicted in the lower left margin, is part of the following page.
