PARESSE.

Paresse.

Dessus son muy se siet,[1] loeuvre laissée
Et lampe ardent dessoubz,[2] couvre l’Essaée
Paresse en froc, soubz couleur de Pieté,
N’apporte à soy, n’à aultre utilité.

Soubz couleur de vie contemplative, est cachée oysi-
veté, estaignant les vertus, & nourrissant les vices.

Notes:

1.  ‘sits idly on the bushel-box’. See next emblem.

2.  ‘covers up the flaming torch’. Cf. Matthew 5:15, Neque accendunt lucernam et ponunt eam sub modio, ‘nor do men light a candle and put it under a bushel’.
