Psalms 106:37f.: The Israelites are decapitating their sons and daughters as part of a heathen sacrifice. The large figure on the right stands with a scourge and shield with twelve studs. The shield is the breastplate of judgement, set with twelve studs for the twelve tribes of Israel (Exodus 28: 15-21).
