L’arbre on cognoit volontiers par le fruict
Bon ou mavais, c’en est le tesmoignage.
Et l’homme aussi par l’oeuvre qu’il produit,
Tant contrefaict que soit le sien langage.
De Christ mettant la sentence en usage,
L’arbre mauvais il faut au piť couper,
Et mettre au feu. Ainsi l’homme mal sage
Et endurci, par droit faut extirper.

QUAE NON FACIT BONOS FRUCTUS

Which does not bring forth good fruit (Matthew 7:19)

lxii.

Tempore quae nescit cultori reddere fructus
Fertur in ardentes arbor iniqua rogos.
Improba gens Christum solo quae praedicat ore,
Ex ima in flammas stirpe recisa ruet.

At once the unfavourable tree which cannot bring fruit to its cultivator is cast into the burning funeral pyre. Wicked people who profess Christ only with their mouths will be cut down from the bottom of the trunk and fall in the flames.
