Psalm 051 (Vulg., 050)
David: in Prayer -- David, crowned, in armor with sheathed sword, kneels on one knee before brink of Hell, in which two demons flank damned souls, including one with hands joined. David, right hand raised and left hand extended, glances up toward Christ-Logos, rayed cross as nimbus, emerging from cloud, raising right hand in blessing and holding globe surmounted by cross in left hand. In background is landscape with city.
