 * Prov 10:27: Yir’at YHWH tosif yamim. Vulgate: “timor Domini adponet dies et anni impiorum breviabuntur”.

Vocalisation is incorrect in one place, as compared to the Masoretic text: the first vocal of “yamim” is kamec in the Masoretic text, while patach in the album. Accents are missing in the two words in the middle.

 * 1Tim 4,12: Vulgate: “nemo adulescentiam tuam contemnat sed exemplum esto fidelium in verbo in conversatione in caritate in fide in castitate”.


The fear of the Lord prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened. *

Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 1Tim 4,12. *
