La langue aux mains & le coeur loing derriere,
D’Hypocrisie est la droite peinture,
Elle seduit par sa douce maniere,
Et rit mordant la simple creature.
Or Christ apprent en la saincte escriture
Que rien ne sert la langue sans le coeur,
Dont l’hypocrite a povre couverture.
Dieu clair-voyant rend moqué le moqueur.

FRUSTRA ME COLUNT

They revere me in vain

xxv.

Ore Deum solo frustra veneraberis, alto
Non simulata sedet pectore relligio.
Ergo fallaci mendacia fingere lingua
Desine: sincera sed cole mente Deum.

With the mouth alone you will venerate God in vain; true piety/reverence (religio) resides in the depths of the heart. So stop forming lies with a false tongue but rather revere God with your mind/soul (mens).
