Scripture Reference:

Description: A hand from the clouds holds a scale, which is suspended over the mouth of hell and on which balance symbols of worldly power - an orb, a crown, and a scepter - and a kneeling person; on a mountain top Satan tempts Jesus. The Latin superscription reads, The most excellent pledge of man, the soul," and the text below, "Who overwhelms the despicable golden scepters by his prayer? A mind related to heaven: the image of the Divine Mind.".
