‘Numerous … I made you grow like a plant in the field. ‘And the Egyptians dealt evilly with us…’ Recto, the word panel is decorated with foliate designs and draagon-like creatures int he margins. Verso, a tower that appears in the initial word panel on fol. 42b both balances the one under construction on the facing page, and illustrates the text above it that mentions the building of two store-cities. This tower is completed and a dog stands in its doorway, shoots of acorns sprouting from its mouth to fill the rest of the panel. The base of the tower continues into the lower margin, resting two animal-headed hybrids, the one on the right looping its neck around another hybrid. At the top of the page a figure with a high hat grips the legs of two grey stork-like irds watched by a bearded creature with pointed ears.
