Ces pots sont faits par un mesme potier,
Grands & petits, selon sa volunté,
L’un à honneur, l’autre à autre mestier
De mesme argile en simplesse & bonté:
Or si quelcun estoit si effronté
Que d’estriver encontre son facteur.
De le briser est en sa liberté.
Soit donc chacun humble à son createur.

QUIS TANDEM ES

Man, who are you (Rom 9:21-22)

lxxiiii.

Vasa facit figulus diversis usibus: ista
Sordibus, haec lymphis apta, sed illa mero:
Fasque simul virga, quodcumque obmurmurat illi,
Frangere. Fictori disce subesse tuo.

The potter makes the pots for different uses: this one is fitted for uncleanness, this one for water but that for pure wine. It is right to break anything which murmurs against him, as if with a rod. Learn to be subordinate to your maker.
