1 Forsothe Baldach Suytes answeride, and seide,
2 Power and drede is anentis hym, that is, God, that makith acordyng in hise hiye thingis.
3 Whether noumbre is of hise knyytis? and on whom schyneth not his liyt?
4 Whether a man comparisound to God mai be iustified, ether borun of a womman mai appere cleene?
5 Lo! also the moone schyneth not, and sterris ben not cleene in `his siyt;
6 hou miche more a man rot, and the sone of a man a worm, is vncleene `and vile, if he is comparisound to God.
