L’homme qui tient tousjours son coeur au monde,
Soy-mesme enterre en la fosse qu’il cure,
Et n’en sent rien, car en bombance abonde:
Mais asses tost en payera l’usure.
Satan le tient lié de chaine obscure,
Ployant son col que haut il ne regarde,
Tant que la fosse ait sa droitte mesure,
Lors tombera qu’il ne s’en donra garde.

TIBI IMPUTA

It is your own fault

lxxviii [=lxxvii] .

Cui fixum in mundo cor est, post decidet istanc
Quam facit ipse sibi, nescius in foveam:
Nam Daemon laqueo incurvum vinctumque catenis
Sic habet, ut coelum non queat adspicere.

He whose heart is fixed on the world, afterwards will fall, unknowing, into that same pit which he makes for himself; for the Devil holds him bent with a snare and held captive by chains so that he is not able to see heaven.
