Psalm: 108
Iconography: Christ, in heaven, flanked by two angels, pulls David up by the hand. Help me lord my god: save me according to your mercy. And let them know that this is your hand. With his other hand Christ pierces a sinner's lips with his crozier. On the other side, another sinner with open mouth grasps at David. They have spoken against me with deceitful tongues.
