Psalm: 9:1
Iconography: Christ looks down from heaven to the psalmist who offers him praise.I will acknowledge you lord with all my heart The poor and needy who will be succoured sit smiling beside him.The lord is made a refuge for the poor. Cowering in the jaws of hell are the wicked, sunk in the pit which they made. Sinners shall be turned into hell.
Art: Under drawing shows the cloaks of the damned were more pleated and the psalmist's lower foot has been over painted by a leaf.
