Un bel exemple avons en la coleuvre,
Laquelle laisse au hallier sa peau dure,
A celle fin qu’une neuve recoeuvre.
Ostons ainsi avec sa pourriture
Du vieil Adam la perverse nature,
Pour au second estre nais & refaicts:
Car du premier nous n’avons rien qu’ordure,
Mais au second sommes rendus parfaicts.

DERELINQUE[1]

Cast off

xli.

Ponere scit veteres coluber reparabilis annos,
Et novus, exuta pelle, resurgit humo.
Illius exemplo, primaevas ablue sordes,
Qui vita in Christo vis meliore frui.

The snake which can be renewed knows how to lay aside the old years and new rises again from the earth, having shed its skin. By the snake’s example, wash away your original uncleanness, you who want to enjoy a better life in Christ.

Notes:

1.  Cf. Colossians 3:9
