Harsusi, one of the six languages that comprise the Modern South Arabian branch of the Semitic family, is still rather poorly attested. One of the major sources of information is a small corpus of texts collected by T.M. Johnstone and published posthumously by Harry Stroomer. The errors present in that published edition have a negative impact on our limited understanding of Harsusi grammar and vocabulary. The present article, which includes a re-edition of one of Johnstone's texts, along with translation and commentary, aims to improve upon our current knowledge of Harsusi.
