EMBLEMA IX.

Pinge globum tenui quem libratum undique filo
Sustineat summi numinis alta manus,
Talis es urbs Christi de nomine dicta beato,
Qua nil firmius est, mobiliusque nihil.

Paint the globe which the lofty hand of the mighty godhead [numen] supports on all sides, suspended by a fine thread; such is the city of Christ, called blessed by name, than which nothing is more secure, and nothing more unstable.
