EMBLEME XII.

Le nuage esclattant en allumez brandons
Nous verse au mesme instant des eaux grands randons.
Ainsi Christ est ta vie, en foy si le retiens,
Il est ta mort aussi si conte tu n’en tiens.[1]

Notes:

1. On a similar theme, see Erasmus, Adagia 1.8.65, ‘Nunc pluit, & claro nunc Iuppiter aethere fulgit’ (One moment it is raining, the next Jupiter is shining from a clear sky).
