Psalm: 63
Iconography: At the top of the initial, The just shall rejoice in our lord. Below, the unjust whets his tongue with his sword and another bends his bow, bending his back fantastically at the same time, to shoot the just by surprise. [ Workers of injustice] have sharpened their tongue as a sword: they have bent the bow a bitter thing.
