From the "St. Albans Psalter", created at St. Abans Abbey essentially by Geoffrey de Gorham (or Gorron), Abbot of St. Albans (1119-46). Psalms 116:13, 15: The psalmist holds up the book inscribed with "the chalice of salvation". In his other hand he holds a chalice. Christ watches him benignly while on the other side an evil man shoots an arrow at the psalmist: "the death of his holy ones is precious in the sight of the Lord."
