Non à toy l’honneur: mais à la Religion.

NARRATION.

Ung paresseux Asne portoit l’Image
De la Deesse Isis: auquel hommage
Tous rencontréz faisoient, en suppliant
Reveremment: & les genoilz ployant.
Link to an image of this page  Link to an image of this page  [B5v p26]A luy l’honneur l’Asne estre faict pensoit,
Et en orgueil jusqu’à tant se dressoit
Que l’Asnier dist (touchant à verges fortes)
Tu nes pas Dieu (asne) mais tu le portes.[1]

Les Presbtres, ores qu’ilz soient
ignorans, ou vicieux, sont neant-
moins honnoréz pour l’honneur
du Maistre qu’ilz servent. Et ainsi
des aultres serviteurs de Roys,
Princes, & grandz Seigneurs.
