Den almoghenden God, als wesende den eenighen rijcken springh-ader alles goeds, word hier Godvruchtiglick in d’eerste plaetse gestelt; wiens oneyndelicke goedertierenheydt de herten der Ouders ghestaedighlick verweckt, om goede sorge over haere Kinderen te draeghen, ten eynde dat haere liefste panden ghetijdighlick in handen eenes goeden ende ghetrouwen Leer-meesters overghelevert sijnde, niet allen d’eerste grondslaeghen maer oock d’allerdiepste gheheymenissen der Konste van kinds beenen aen moghten indrinken. Indien het dan gheviel dat de Leerlingen haere leer-jaeren gheeyndight hebben ’t goede voorschrift der Meesters achter den rugghe bestonden te versmijten, ende haer eyghen hoofd tot naedeel van de konst te volghen, so plaght de vreese van strenghe wetten teghen de verdervers der konsten ghemaeckt dese haere onghebondenheyt krachtighlick te betoomen: indien sy daer en teghen van oprechtigheyd haerer eerster onderwijsinghe in het minste niet ghesint waeren af te wijcken, so wierden sy in desen standvastighen loop dapper ghestijft door eenen sekeren Naer-yver ofte Aemulatie, die de wackere verstanden gheen ruste liet ghenieten tot dat sy niet alleen haer Meester achterhaelden; maer ook de Meesters haerer Meesters te boven gingen.

[Suggested translation, Marije Osnabrugge:] The almighty God, being the only rich vein of all things good, is Devoutly placed here in first place; whose endless mercy steadily causes in the hearts of Parents to take good care of their Children, lest their dearest offspring are delivered timely to the hands of a good and loyal Master, may they not only drink in the first principles but also the deepest secrets of Art from childhood on. If it then happens that the Pupils, having finished their period of training, throw away the good instruction of the Master behind his back and follow their own mind to the disadvantage of the art, then the fear of strict laws made against the corruptors of the arts is apt to strongly bound this licentiousness: however, if out of honesty they never intended to deviate from their first instruction, then they are valiantly strengthened in this firm course through a certain envy or emulation, which would not allow the mind to enjoy any rest until they would not only overtake their Master; but also surpass the Masters of their Masters.
