At lower left of image, in Latin: "Israel ex[cudit] cum Privil[egio] Reg[is]," or "Israël Henriet printed this with royal privilege."

The French text beneath the image reads:

"Ces ennemis du Ciel qui pechent mil fois/
Contre les Saincts Decrets et les divines Loix/
Font gloire mechamment de piller et d'abattre/
Les Temples du vray Dieu d'une main idolatre;/
Mais pour punition de les avoir brulez/
Ils font eux mesmes enfin aux flammes immolez.


"These enemies of Heaven who sin a thousand times
Against the Holy Decrees and the divine Laws
Maliciously plunder and slaughter
The Temples of the true God with idolatrous hands;
But for punishment of their burnings
They must sacrifice themselves to the flames."

(translated by Willoughby Thom, intern, summer 2022)
