Psalm: 59
Iconography: Christ knocks the psalmist off balance with a deft kick, and at the same time blesses him. God you have repulsed us and have destroyed us: you were angry and have had mercy on us. The image is particularly vivid as the psalmist reaches out to steady himself on the rim of the letter.
