Nulle rigueur, tempeste ny orage,
N’ont offensé ceste haute esperance,
Mais la terrestre a receu grand dommage:
Ainsi sera tousjours la recompense
De l’homme fol, qui a sa confiance
Aux princes grands, ou mesme en sa vertu.
Mais qui en Dieu mettra son asseurance
Il ne sera confondu n’abatu.

NON CONFUNDIT
NOLITE
CONFIDERE[1]

...maketh not ashamed. Put not your trust...

x.

Firma stetit subnixa Deo, fracta impete venti
Concidit, humana fulta columna manu.
Sic perit expectans hominum virtute salutem,
Fide Deo, nunquam spes tibi vana cadet.

The column supported by God stood firm, but the one held in a human hand fell, broken by the force of the wind. In the same way he who expects salvation through the virtue of men perishes, but through faith in God your hope never proves vain.

Notes:

1.  Romans 5:5. Cf. Psalms 145:2 (146:6); Jeremiah 17:5
