    TEXT: Wafer residue suggests a slip of paper, no longer extant, was attached to this page. The residue obscures this and most of the two previous lines. The lower half of the characters in “VIII” are still legible. Given the amount of space obscured by the remnants of the adhesive wafer, an additional citation was likely originally included before “11th.”.

    TEXT: Wafer residue suggests a slip of paper, no longer extant, was attached to this page. Given the amount of space obscured by the remnants of the adhesive wafer, this citation likely refers to only one verse. The chapter, of course, is unknown.

    Only five of the first eleven chapters of Old Testament Revision 2 have nineteen or more verses: chapters 1, 6, 8, 9, and 10. These cited scriptures would therefore correlate with material in one of five locations in Genesis 7:5–17; 8:1–3; and Old Testament Revision 2: pages 2–3, 13, 17, 22–23, or 28–29 [Moses 1:24–26, 30–31; 5:46–51, 54–57; 6:43–48, 51–52; 7:37–42, 46–48].

    TEXT: Within the volume, the unintentional offsetting of ink on the opposite page from where the page of scriptures would have been provides clues to the probable amount of material that was present. The first line perhaps begins with a capital “S” for “Scriptures,” and the second line may begin with a “G” for “Genesis,” since some other lines begin similarly.
