Thou, trader, shouldest trust God that He will find thee a livelihood with true winnings, for so much hath He promised thee with His divine Mouth. Yet now thou swearest so loudly how good thy wares are and what profit thou givest the buyer thereby. More than ten or thirty times takest thou the names of all the saints in vain-God and all His saints-for wares scarce worth five shillings. Ye yourselves know best what lies and frauds are busy in your trades.
