Rob. Marbeck ad lectorem.

AVscultat nostris diuina potentia votis;
Et prece, non pretio flectitur ira Dei.
Perlege scripturas, & sancta volumina patrum;
Assiduis precibus nos vigilare iubent.
Si malè te morbus prostratis viribus vrat;
Si te paupertas inuidiosa premat;
Per steriles saltus, per dura & inhospita saxa
Passibus ambiguis, si vel inermis eas,
Si mare te iacter, si tempestatibus actus,
Et coelum, & terras, mox ruitura putes:
Si te circunstet vel mille pericula mortis;
Inuoca, nil dubitans numina, saluus eris.
Ergo si precibus vis tanta putetur inesse,
Praeponi precibus, nil (mihi crede) potest.
Hic labor, hic liber est, tibi quem Bentlēius offert,
Nil aliud resonans, quàm pietate preces;
Et pius est Author: pius & conatus: vtrun{que}
Cur perames, causam candide lector, habes.
