This woodblock was originally engraved for an illustration to be used in the 'Dalziels' Bible Gallery' (pub. 1881). However, it was not included in the original book. It was ultimately published in 1894 when it appeared in 'Art Pictures from the Old Testament.' This was a new version of the 'Bible Gallery' with an accompanying text and additional illustrations. The design is based on Psalm 85, verse 10: 'Mercy and truth are met together; rightousness and peace have kissed each other.' The two women depicted personify Rightousness and Peace.
