Tous appelez sont bien par ceste cloche,
Et toutesfois n’y vont tous qu’elle appelle.
Ce n’est raison pourtant qu’elle ayt reproche:
Car elle fait tout ce qui est en elle.
L’Evangile est de condition telle,
Qui salut tout le monde convie:
Mais nul ne veut parvenir jusqu’ elle,
Fors ceux que Dieu a choisis la vie.

MULTI SUNT VOCATI[1]

Many are called.

xliii.

Aera quatit, pulsuque ad coetum convocat omnes
Praeco, nec in culpa est, si quis adesse neget.
Sic, aeterna Deo vulgante oracula, surdum
Quisquis agit, propria dat sibi fraude malum.

The bronze [bell] tolls and as it is struck calls all men to the banquet. Nor is the herald at fault if anyone refuses to attend. In the same way, when God makes known his eternal pronouncements, he who acts as deaf brings evil on himself by his own deception.

Notes:

1. Matthew 20:16
