Psalm 028 (Vulg., 027) -- David wearing helmet and armor, kneels with joined hands raised, beside harp on ground. He looks toward Christ-Logos, with crossed-nimbus, as half figure, making gesture of blessing with right hand and holding cross-surmounted globe in left hand, within cloud-edged arc of heaven, rayed.
Scene in room with open window through which appears soldiers in battle, two of which hold banners.
Margin is decorated with foliate border, including daisies, roses, and strawberries, inhabited by moth and bird.
