Description Fol. 18v: To the right and below the liturgical hymn Dayeynu ("It had sufficed us"), is a legendary scene (Yalkut Shim'oni, Bo, 186) also alluded to in the hymn: "Had he given us their substance...". Along the outer margin, a woman is looking into a chest (based to Ex. 11:2), inscribed: "בשלש(ה) ימי אפילה באו בני ישראל והרכוש בתיבות ראו." "During the three days of darkness the Israelites came and saw the wealth that was in the chests." After taking the vessels from the chest, two women are seen carrying bottles, sacks, and brass vessels. In the lower margin are two additional women searching another chest. The woman on the right holds a large jug. A third woman, on the right carries a decorated bag. Inscribed in the centre: "הכוסות כסף והקנקנים לשאת עמם מוכנים." "The silver cups and the jugs, they were ready to take with them." At the bottom, inscribed: "בנות ישראל האהובים נושאי' תוך כיס זהובים." "Daughters of Israel lovely to behold, carry in their pocket (coins) of gold."
