Psalm: 83
Iconography: There are two trees in whose branches are birds and nests. At the bottom two parents feed their young, while in the top two nests a single bird feeds and a smaller one watches. In fact the sparrow has found herself a house: and the turtle-dove a nest for herself where she may lay her young ones.
