Psalm: 100
Iconography: Christ thrusts aside two sinners with forks.The fork spears the jaw of the man on the right. He who acts proudly shall not dwell in within my house: he who speaks unjust things did not line up in the sight of my eyes. Christ does not look at them but turns his head to the cross above.I did not eat with the one of proud eye and insatiable heart. My eyes are towards the faithful of the earth .
Art: Prick marks for lines visible. The rubricator wrote 'tue' in error and superposed the correct 'mee' above the title line.
