Ces coupes sont pleines grande & petite,
Et ne pourroient rien tenir davantage:
L’une pourtant n’est ne l’autre depite,
Pour se voir moins & à l’autre avantage.
Les saincts aussi au celeste heritage
Si l’un a moins, & que l’autre en ait plus,
Sont neantmoins contens de leur partage:
Car remplis sont de gloire tous esleus.

SUFFICIT

It is enough

lxxxvi.

Exiguum magnumque vides cratera repletos:
Nulla tamen, plus hic quòd tenet, invidia est.
In coelis par est ratio: nam quisque beatus,
Quanuis non prorsus conditione pari est.

You see the small and the big cup full: yet there is no envy because this one holds more. In heaven the reckoning is equal: for, everyone is blessed, even though he is not of a completely equal condition.
