Ce Philisthin s’est par orgueil armé,
Et veut tirer contre simple Innocence:
Mais Dieu a fait son traict envenimé
Tourner sur luy, brisant son arrogance.
O beau miroir aux yeux de nostre France!
Pour contempler du grand Dieu des hauts cieux
Le prompt secours, la justice & puissance,
Qui garde l’humble, & abat l’orgueilleux.

A MALO CASTIGABERIS

You will be punished by evil

xxvi.

Immiti innocuum sperabas sternere letho:
Sed tibi iusta tua est poena parata manu.
Nam te reflexo confixum deiicit ictu,
Dum fugit immeritum stricta sagitta caput.

You hoped to prostrate the innocent one with harsh death: but the punishment which you prepared with your hand is rightly yours. For it casts you down, pierced through, with the shot reversed, while the arrow which has been shot flees the guiltless head.
