- This miniature from a breviary begins Psalm 68, 'Salvum me fac Deus quoniam intraverunt aquae usque ad animam meam' (Save me O Lord, for the waters are come in even unto my soul), which was read during Matins of every Thursday. David, who was believed in the Middle Ages to have composed the Psalms, typically appears as the subject in psalter illustration as he does here, enacting the literal meaning the first line of the psalm. This miniature comes from the same manuscript as Lewis E M 9:19-26.
