Voyez comment ceste Reine s’efforce
De coeur non feinct d’avancer l’edifice
Du temple sainct, pour de toute sa force
Loger vertu, & deschasser tout vice.
Notons que Dieu la rend ainsi propice,
Afin qu’il soit glorifié en elle:
Et qu’on soit prompt (ainsi qu’elle) au service
Dont le loyer est la vie eternel [=éternelle] .

SAPIENS MULIER AEDIFICAT DOMU.[1]

Every wise woman buildeth her house

i.

Cur, age, sic instas operi, sanctumque laborem
Ipsa tua celeras, Dux generosa, manu?
Sollicitat pietaties amor redivivus, & alma
Relligio, cultu conspicienda sacro.

Come, why do you pursue this work in this way, and yourself hasten the holy work, noble Queen, with your own hand? Renewed love, which consists of faith (pietas), and nourishing religion, which needs to be seen in sacred observance, incite her.

Notes:

1.  Proverbs 14:1
