L’homme endurcy, par son orgeuil deceu,
Dit que son oeuvre au ciel le justifie.
O fol, qu’as tu que tu n’ayes receu?
Si l’as receu, donc ne t’en glorifie,
Et cela, qui n’est rien, ne te fie.
Car celuy semblable je te voy,
Qui ne croit rien, & tous certifie
Le monde avoir est cre par soy.

NON EX TE

Not of yourself

xlix.

Tun’ igitur virtute tua peperisse putasti
Tot bona, divino munere parta tibi?
Demens: ingratum quem vana superbia reddit:
Nescis, non propria luce micare facem?

Do you therefore think that you have accomplished so many good things by your own virtue, when so many have been granted to you by divine gift? Madman, whom vain pride makes ungrateful: do you not know that a torch does not shine with its own light?
