This verse is lettered in Fraktur with the first word in Lombardic capitals. The emphasis is on the fact that the LORD showed this, using gold and outlining to emphasis His names and pronoun. This list is both good and required - a combination God uses regularly with His instructions to us. He also has a way of giving great simplicity with this list of three good and required things, even as Jesus did in answering the lawyer about the greatest commandment (Matthew 22:37-40).
Story Behind the Art
Jane Glosser is an interior designer who loves Scripture. She headed up a project for Trinity Baptist Church in Mt. Pleasant, TX, to display large framed verses (22"x28") in their new foyer. Their strategy was to have church members volunteer to sponsor the lettering and display of one of their favorite verses. I had the privilege of doing these verses. This is one of the pieces that was matted and framed.
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.
