Psalm: 111
Iconography: The just man wears a golden circlet and carries a golden horn. His horn shall be lifted up in glory...Glory and riches/ [shall be] in his house. He blesses the naked poor and his assistant puts clothes on them He has distributed, he has given to the poor. Giving clothes is not mentioned in the text but clothing the naked was one of the virtues enjoined by the Rule of St Benedict. (AP, 247; Rule, chapter iv,15))
