De Dieu la voye est droite & trespolie:
Le juste y passe, & le meschant trebusche.
Qui fait cela? son orgueil & folie,
Qui d’un festu fait une lourde buche,
L’homme endurci les saints escrits espluche,
Non pour desir de gloire ą son Dieu rendre,
Mais pour remplir sa sotte coqueluche
De mots obscurs pour l’innocent surprendre.

FACILE DIFFICILE

Easy [is] difficult

xciiii.

Plana via est, nullis salebris, non obsita spinis
Semita mortales quą jubet ire Deus:
Hac iustus pergit facilč, at mens impia nodum
Repperit in scirpo, nec potis ire simul.

The way is smooth, the path which God orders mortals to go is not sown with any roughness nor with thorns; the just man walks there easily, but the unbelieving mind finds difficulties where there are none (lit. seeks a knot in a bullrush), nor can you go the same way.
