Inscription

In plate, below image: Jacobus Batelier, Predikant by de Remonstranten in s'Gravenhage. De gryse wysheit leest en glinstert in dit Licht. Het hooghgeleerdt verstandt schiet straelen door 't gesicht; Maer klaerder op 't papier. Aenschou dat, daer syn' boeken De spreuk van Jacob en van Esau ondersoeken. Hy leerdt wat godt met recht verwierp, uit gunst verkoor. Het misverstandt verdwynt. Syn helder licht breekt door."
