Psalm 025 (Vulg., 024):
Christ: Parable, Lazarus and Dives -- In street lined by buildings, Lazarus reclines, hands joined, outside gabled archway decorated with statue of male figure in niche. His nude soul is borne to heaven by two angels. Within room, Dives reclines in canopied bed, his nude soul taken away by two devils. His wife sits at foot of bed, hands covering her face.
