A page presenting Psalm 109 from the Ormesby Psalter, perhaps the single most memorable MS of East Anglian illumination (see also Images 353 and 384). The psalter was worked on at various times by several artists, (probably in Norwich) from before 1300 until the 1320s - when it was presented to Norwich Cathedral Priory by Robert of Ormesby, himself a monk at Norwich Bodleian Library, Oxford Bodleian Library, MS Douce, 366, fol 147v
Jesus tells us not to worry about tomorrow. He tells us, "Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:34. Christian Inspiration
From the Queen Mary Psalter of 1310-20, illumination to Psalm 109 (AV 110). Figures above (one in a tree) cast down palms as Christ enters Jerusalem, and a man lays down his garment in the road for Christ to ride over. Only two disciples are shown. In the initial Father and Son are seated, holding orbs, with the dove of the Holy Spirit between them. Below, St Stephen is shown preaching.
Psalm 109:23-25King James Version (KJV) 23 I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down as the locust. 24 My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth of fatness. 25 I became also a reproach unto them: when they looked upon me they shaked their heads. King James Version (KJV)
