Psalm: 68:17
Iconography: Christ sits facing away from the psalmist. The psalmist's tongue hangs from his mouth: I will praise the name of god with a song. He points to Christ's ear and tries to turn his head. Hear me lord..And turn not away your face from your slave
Art: Christ's cloak was drawn with a jagged hem but painted straight.
