|121||O vainglorious Christians, miserable wretches!|
|122||Sick in the visions engendered in your minds,|
|123||you put your trust in backward steps.|
|124||Do you not see that we are born as worms,|
|125||though able to transform into angelic butterflies|
|126||that unimpeded soar to justice?|
|127||What makes your mind rear up so high?|
|128||You are, as it were, defective creatures,|
|129||like the unformed worm, shaped from the mud.|
