From a series illustrating all the 150 psalms. Psalms 34:13-15. Artist's comment: "What a powerful statement. A person who desires life must do good and seek peace and guard his tongue. In the tree of life, the branches spell the famous saying of Rabbi Akiva, "Love thy neighbor as thyself." Anybody able to do this has fulfilled the commandments of the Torah. But this statement is not simple. It needs a lot of commentary and interpretation."
