|It seemed strange to me, a wolf held by a lamb;
the lamb fell … and disemboweled the wolf.
As I stood and watched I beheld great glory:
There stood two wolves troubling a third—
four feet had they; with seven eyes they saw.
|Mirum videtur mihi lupus ab agno tenetur ·|
agnus · et capit viscera lupi
dum starem et vidi gloriam ·
lupi stantes et tertium
pedes habebant cum septem oculis videbant
