Scripture Reference:

Description: A sinful woman anoints Jesus' feet with oil and to the left, a soldier falls from his horse and dies; Paul encounters the risen Lord on the road to Damascus and the people of Malta convert after a snakebite fails to harm Paul; overhead, two birds perch over a pair of banners, one of which says, "Now, now," and the other, "Tomorrow, tomorrow." The Latin superscription reads, "Lest you turn to the Lord too late," and the text below, "When is it opportune to withdraw from the hardness of sin? Soon, today, even now: The prick of death overhands all.".
