Psalm: 58
Iconography: Christ, holding a scroll, leans over and repels a devil by poking him in the mouth with a stick. A nimbed man points to Christ's saving action and to the devils below. Deliver me from my enemies my god: and from them that rise up against me defend me… Scatter them in your strength: and lay them down lord my protector: The sin of their mouth the word of their lips: and let them be taken in their pride. And for cursing and lying. Below, four mischievous devils point and wave flesh hooks.
