Le cheval, maigre en quelque part qu’il aille
Ne trouve point de la mouche allegeance,
Et le meschant, combien quil se travaille,
Ne peut fuir la tresjuste vengeance
De Dieu sur luy, par folle outrecuidance
En tous lieux donc il se sent poursuyvi:
Mais plus qu’ailleurs dedans sa conscience.
Le mal voulut, & le mal l’a suyvi.

FRUSTRA CURRIS

You run in vain

Vesparum, quacunque fugis, te spicula pungunt.
Heu miser! hoc macies dat scabiosa malum.
Sic etiam nulla mens impia pace quiescens,
Tabifico aeternum moesta furore fremit.

However you flee, the stings of wasps pierce you, Oh wretch! your mangy thinness causes this suffering. So also no ungodly mind [can remain] resting in peace; saddened it trembles forever with infectious madness.
