Psalm: 147
Iconography: God hurtles downwards. Flying from his mouth is a bird who flies down a shaft to the earth. Who sends forth his speech to the earth. Earth is depicted as a block of ice surrounded by melting water: He shall send out his word and shall melt them[ the ice]: his spirit shall blow and waters shall flow.
