MS. Heb. d. 67


Fol. 1
Commentary on Genesis and Exodus

beg. and end missing, beg. with נח (Genesis ix), ending with כי תשא (Exodus xxxiv. 1); there are lacunae after ff. 1, 13, 23, 33, 64, 103, 104. It is homiletical in character, with frequent grammatical explanations, thus on Exodus xix. 18, the author says (fol. 69):

והר סיני עשן. לשון פעל. כמו שמר. אמר. וכן תרג̇ אנק̇ תנן כוליה. וכל עשן שבמקרא נקוד קמץ מפני שהוא שם דבר. עשן. כולו ולא מקום השכינה. מפני אשר ירד עליו יי באש בעשרת הדברות. ונמשלו דברי תורה באש מה האש חיים לעולם אף דברי תורה כן. ומה האש כשיקרב האדם אליה נכוה. נתרחק ממנה מתחמם ומתהנה. כך בעלי תורה.
