Psalm: 48
Iconography: Two large and two small figures are contained within the initial.They are the earth- born, children of men, the rich and poor. One large man points to the text and points to the ear of his neighbour: Hear these things all nations: gather in with ears all that inhabit the world. All who are earth-born and children of men: in one the rich and the poor.
