Embleme VII
XVI. Geffrey Whitney
Motto: Veritas invicta.

THOUGHE Sathan striue with all his maine and mighte
To hide the truthe, and dimme the lawe deuine;
Yet to his worde the Lorde doth giue such lighte,
That to the East and West the same doth shine:
  And those that are so happie for to looke,        5
  Saluation finde within that blessed booke.
