Psalm: 118:121
Iconography: Christ is enthroned, holding a crozier. With his other hand he pulls the psalmist up. Receive your servant into good [things]. The crowned psalmist kisses Christ's foot, a gesture of monastic humility. He points to a proud onlooker who stands facing Christ. Do not let the proud slander me.
Art: The tag seems to be a afterthought on the design of this page, squeezed out by the exaggerated size of the initial.
