Psalm: 103:25
Iconography: Under a starry sky, a man goes off to work with a mattock over his shoulder. Man shall go out to his work: and to his labour until evening. Beside him are three lion cubs roaring for the rabbit which hides behind them.The sun shines above the initial.The lion cubs roaring for prey: and seeking their food from god. The sun is risen and they are gathered together: and they shall occupy their dens. The caption is taken from the preceding part of the psalm
