Les pionniers du monde mesprisez
Ont tant sapé ceste grand’ forteresse
De Babylon, & ses appuis brisez,
Qu’elle va cheoir, pour petit que la presse
Le vent d’enhaut, qui contre elle se dresse.
Sortez enfans, voicy le feu qui vient
Pour consumer elle & qui la soustient,
Sans que jamais en nul temps se redresse.

QUID SUPEREST

What remains

xxiii.

Assyriae concussa diu fundamina turris
Indomito coeli turbine & igne cadent.
Hinc fuge, gens dilecta Deo, fuge gens pia, mistam
Cum reprobis ne te tristia fata ferant.

The foundations of the Assyrian tower, long knocked down, will fall because of the uncontrollable wind from the sky and the fire. Flee thence, beloved people of God, flee, holy people, lest mixed with the wicked this sad fate should overcome you.
