'Your word is a lamp'
- Psalm 119 -
oil on canvas (120-100 cm.)
Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.
I have suffered much , o Lord; restore my life again as you promised.
Lord, accept my offering of praise, and teach me your regulations.
Wearing a prayer shawl (tallit), David is reading the Tora. In the backround are the tablets of stone, portrayed as a window with the verse “your word is a lamp to my feet” in Hebrew text.
In front of the stone tables there is a menorah, shown as a blossoming almond twig.
This symbolizes the promise that Gods’ Word brings life.
