Three additional plagues are depicted next to the previous text and the beginning of the text relating to the Ten Plagues. In the outer top margin are some wild beasts devouring naked men and women (Ex. 8:20). Inscribed:
"המכה רביעית באו לרוב/ חיות רעות נקראו ערוב."
"(In) the fourth plague came many wild beasts which were called Arov." (The identification of Arov as wild beasts is based on the legendary interpretation. Cf. Ex. Rabbah (Vilna), 11:3).
Two half-naked men facing each other, with red tumors under their arms and on their legs, illustrate the plague of murrain (Ex. 9:6). Inscribed:
"מכה חמישית נקרא דבר/ בא להם מעבר לעבר."
"The fifth plague was called murrain; it came to them from one side to the other."
Naked men and women scratching themselves, while their bodies are covered with boils (Ex. 9:10), are on the lower margin. Inscribed on the right:
"שחין ואבעבועות/ פורח בהם כל שעות."
"Boils and sores (Ex. 9:9) breaking forth at all hours."
An additional inscription on the left, reads:
"שחין באדם ובבהמה/ ועל כל יש בו נשמה."
"Boils upon man and cattle (Ex. 9:9-10), and upon every living soul.
