   Biblical stories in Hebrew and Yiddish by Gedaliah ben Moses. The title page describes it as the might of the G-d of Israel and His wonders that He did from the creation of the world until the death of Joshua. Selected from the Torat Moshe, the man of G-d and his attendant Bin Nun. It describes the compiler, Gedaliah ben Moses, as the head of the Free School in Copenhagen. The text follows immediately after the title page, in two columns; the inner column the biblical text in square vocalized letters, the translation in square unvocalized Hebrew letters. Ma’aseh Ha-Shem is divided into forty-one chapters. There is a decorative head piece at the beginning of the text. Biblical history, events, the travels of the Jews in the desert are all described. The ritual laws, commandments, legalistic commandments, and rules of ritual purity are omitted.
