Lettering

Der Tod zum Wucherer. Dein Gold und Geld sieh ich nicht an, du Wucherer und gottlos Mann! Christus hat dich das nicht gelehrt. Ein schwarzer Tod ist dein Gefehrt. Antwort des Wucherers. Ich fragt' nicht viel nach Christi Lehr; mein Wucher, der trug mir viel mehr. Jetzt bleibt der, leider! all dahinten: was hilft mein Schaben und mein Schinden?
