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 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.
