  Notes: From the "St. Albans Psalter", created at St. Abans Abbey essentially by Geoffrey de Gorham (or Gorron), Abbot of St. Albans (1119-46). Psalms 147:1, 6: God tramples a sinner beneath his feet and prods him with the crozier.The psalmist points to this in the tag: "The Lord brings the wicked even down to the ground." He also points to the meek: "The Lord receives the meek into his protection." The meek are praising God, their raised hands forming a separate and disconnected element of the picture.
