Psalm 098 (Vulg., 097):
David: dancing before Ark -- Two high priests, wearing vestments, carry handbarrow on which is Ark of Covenant, decorated with figural reliefs. David, crowned, walks ahead, playing portative organ. He follows group of figures leading into building, elaborately decorated with figural reliefs and heraldic motifs. In window of building, Michal looks out on procession below. Behind building, crowd of figures follows procession. In background, beyond wall, are buildings of city.
