A cest archer insensé sembloit bien
Qu’à chef viendroit de la chose entreprinse:
Mais sur l’enclume il ne proufite rien,
Pleignant trop tard la peine qu’il a prinse.
Les ennemis de Christ & son Eglise
Lairront ainsi arc, flesches & escu:
Car trop vaine est toute leur entreprinse.
Le fils de Dieu ne peut estre vaincu.

OPERAM PERDERE

Wasting work

xiiii.

Quis furor, hostiles in Christum armare catervas,
Et nece crudele perdere velle pios?
Desinite in solidum chalybem torquere sagittas:
Desinite: In proprium vertitis arma caput.

What madness to arm hostile troops [reading catervas] against Christ and to want to destroy the pious with cruel death. Stop shooting arrows against solid steel. Stop: you are turning your arms against your own head.
