Psalm: 148
Iconography: God looks out from heaven. The psalmist exhorts the whole of creation to praise the lord, men and women, beasts, birds, fish and trees. Young men and virgins old and young let them praise the name of the lord.. Praise the lord ..all the depths.. trees that bear fruit and all cedars.. Beasts and all cattle.. feathered fowl.
Art: A rectangular scrap, reused from a piece of pricked parchment, partially covers a rectangular incised hole in the page. This was probably a belmish in the original parchment. (See p370) Ink has bled on the top line of script.
