Si l’homme estoit en soy tout resolu
Que Dieu voit tout, & les plus fins coeurs sonde
Jusques au fond, il ne seroit pollu
Par tant de fois aux ordures du monde.
Mais sa raison, sur laquelle il se fonde,
Lui dit tousjours, Penses-tu qu’il le voye?
O fol, ton sens, oł ton erreur abonde,
Te fait entrer oł n’a sentier ne voye.

QUAS IAM QUAERAS LATEBRAS

What hiding places are you now to seek

lxxxii.

Si cunctis animo fixum immotumque maneret,
Intima vel cordis cognita quaeque Deo,
Non tanto gemeret scelerum sub pondere tellus:
Heu, spes efugii, quanta fenestra malo es?

If all people remained firmly resolved that even every intimate part of the heart is known to God, they would not groan under such a weight of wickedness; alas! hope of escape, what a window for evil you are?
