Psalm 054 (Vulg., 053)
Abraham: communicating with God (Told to sacrifice Isaac) -- Abraham, hands raised, standing next to Isaac, looks up toward half-figure of Christ-Logos, rayed cross as nimbus, appearing amid clouds, pointing with right hand to globe, surmounted by cross. Draped altar is on rocky outcropping next to figures. In background is landscape, including city, inhabited by figures.
