  Sgan-Cohen, Psalm 73

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

Psalm 73 is written in one paragraph in cursive and block letters varying in size and boldness in 26 uneven lines. The number 73 is written in Hebrew cursive letters in the lower right corner on the reverse side of the sheet. ע"ג The first word of the chapter, "A psalm" (73:1) is written in the margin to the right of the paragraph. The second word, "of Asaph" ( 73:1) is the only word on the first line. מזמור לאסף On the second line the words "God" and "Israel" written in block letters are combined together to make one word in Rashi script. The second word on line 15, "Good," is crossed out (73:1). אך טוב לישראל אלוהים Lines 1-5 are written in bold letters, while the letters from the middle of line 6 to middle of line 9 are finer and smaller (73:5-8 "not in... oppression "). On line 9 the words "They speak loftily" ( 73:8) are written in large broad block letters. עושק ממרום ידברו Lines 10-14 are written in thin and large letters. Two palms are drawn on line 14 beside the words "washed my hands in innocency" (73:13). The letters on line 14 until the end have letters that are very large, bold, and well spaced. On line 18, beside the word "my heart" (Psalms 73:21) a dark shrunken heart is drawn. A pair of kidneys is depicted beside the word "my reins". A right hand is depicted at the end of lines 19-24 and is drawn holding a pen which refers the words: "thou hast holden me by my right hand" (73: 23).
