En Dieu se fault esjouyr.


Voyez comment l’Aigle porte grand joye
Dessus les cieulx, le bel enfant de Troie?[1]
Qui ne croiroit Jupiter estre attainct
D’amour d’enfant? D’ond l’ha Homere fainct?
Qui au conseil de Dieu est osjouy [=esjouy]
Au souverain Jupiter est ravy.

Ravissement d’esprit Dieu, sans separation de corps:
est contentement de l’ordonnance de Dieu en toutes choses.


1. The Trojan boy’, i.e. Ganymede, son of the Trojan prince, Tros, snatched away by the gods to be Jove’s cup-bearer. See Homer, Iliad 20.232ff, though the eagle is a post-Homeric addition. The Greek motto in the accompanying illustration means ‘to delight in counsels’, referring to a supposed etymology of the name Ganymedes, for which see Xenophon, Symposium 8.30.
