Son devoir fait de bien sa ligne tendre,
Et ne s’espargne en chaleur ny frescheur,
Si le poisson l’amorce ne veut prendre,
Coulpable n’est l’engin ny le pescheur.
Ainsi est il du fidele prescheur,
Il tend vous prendre ŕ Dieu par la parole:
Mais le coeur dur de l’obstiné pecheur
Se destournant, la tient comme frivole.

NON SUM IN CULPA

I am not to blame

xxxv.

Piscosos petit iste lacus, & proiicit escam:
Pisce tamen nullo ditior inde redit.
Sic divina pius pandens oracula doctor,
Indociles inter nescit habere fidem.

This man seeks ponds full of fish, and casts his bait: but he returns from there richer by no fish (i.e. with no catch). In the same way the pious Doctor relating his divine sermons does not know how to find faith among the unteachable.
