Lettering note

Lettering continues: God gaf Noa bevel, om een arcke te maken, En van alle gediert' daer in te nemen reÿn: Want hÿ wild' het Aestrÿck met water te niet macken, Om de Goddeloosheÿdt der menschen int gemeÿn, Hy liet 't volck door Noa vermanen tot leetwesen, Wel hondert twintich jaer: maar niemandt had Berou Doen ging Noa in de arck, met zÿn heuÿsvrou gepresen, Ende met syn drÿ soons, en haer drÿ wÿuen trou Doc liet God op aertryck vallen vael watter vlaghen, wel veertich daghen langh zoo dat alle vleesch saen. En al wat leesd op aerden. Vergingh in korte daghen. Op d'hooghste bergen al, most alles me vergaen. Cumq teneret eum bis tertia ...abilis aeias Ingreditur subitoq sui comitantur euntem Omnis subseovitur generis volv[?]crum pecudum Grex et concurrunt animalia caetera terrae
