Psalm 005 (Vulg., 005):
David: Saul's Spear taken -- Before crowd of soldiers holding spears, and one holding standard, David places left hand on back of Abishai, holding spear in right hand and, with left hand, taking Saul's armor, placed on ground inside tent. Within tent, Saul, crowned, sleeps in bed. Soldier sleeps to right of Saul. Border of tent is inscribed OMNIS SPIRITV. In background is landscape, including hill with road leading up to castle.
