This miniature, illustrating another psalm for the
sons of Core, shows David before a crowned female
figure, symbol of the Church Militant and then
She holds in her right hand a bannered cross-staff and in her left a golden chalice and the Eucharist. The triumph of Christ's Church is anticipated in Psalm LXXXVI:
"Glorious things are said of thee, O city of God."
