Circumcision Register Edinburgh


 [Page 1]

A typical microletter Shiviti, with Ibn Ezra's well-known:

Man worries over the loss of his money, but does not worry over the loss of his days.
His money won't help him, his days will not return -

A Shiviti usually then finishes with some pious wish such as: Trust in the Lord; but this one continues:

Man goes after his his desire, but everyday he draws nigh to his death.
