Psalm: 118:65
Iconography: The psalmist is on his knees with his back to Christ. He points to the caption It is good that you have humbled me. At the same time he twists to face Christ who holds the tablet of the law in his hand: I will search your commandments with all my heart
Art: At the bottom of the initial there was possibly a blot. The staining has been partly covered with white paint and the letters have been rewritten with a noticeably blacker ink.
