  Sgan-Cohen, Psalm 79

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Laor, Liora, 03.1995

Psalm 79 is written in two parts on a beige sheet. The first part, containing verses 1-4 is at the center of the right side of the sheet in 8 opaque lines. Verses 5-13 are written in the lower half of the left side of the sheet in 18 uneven lines. Verses 1-4 are written in averge-size bold cursive letters. The first line (Psalms 79:1 "A Psalm... inheritance")the second half of the seventh line and the eighth line (Psalms 79: 4) are written in thin letters. Verses 5-13 are written in cursive and block letters whose size and boldness vary and in lines whose length varies. The cursive letter Shin from the word "Pour out" (psalms 79:6) appears large and bold within a square above the beginning of the third line "שפך". In the first three lines the letters are large and afterwards they get smaller. Lines 1-12 grow longer. Lines 13-14 get shorter while their letters remain large. The last four lines contains one word each, which together are the last words of verse 13: "we will show forth thy praise to all generations"/"לדור ודור נספר תהילתך".
