  Artwork: Psalm 49
  Artist: BERGER, Moshé Tzvi
  Date: Series painted before and around 2000
  Technique: Pen, brown ink, brown wash, blue wash, pierre noire
  Location: Museum of Psalms, Jerusalem
  Notes: From a series illustrating all the 150 psalms. Artist's comment: "Man mistakenly regards the acquisition of riches as an absolute good and as the primary aim of life. He thus forfeits eternity in both worlds and his existence does not continue beyond the grave. However, with sincere repentance, such redemption is not only possible but is also precious to the Almighty."
