Psalm: 146
Iconography: God tramples a sinner beneath his feet and prods him with the crozier.The psalmist points to this in the tag: (The lord) brings the wicked even down to the ground. He also points to the meek. The lord receives the meek into his protection. The meek are praising God, their raised hands forming a separate and disconnected element of the picture: Praise the lord lord because psalm is good.
