Sufficiat quidvis aliis, mihi gratia Jovae *
Caetera deficiant, sufficit illa mihi.
Hisce praestantissimo Nobilissimoque Domino hujus albi possessori
sui memoriam commendat,
J. D. Kempenaer
Hagae a. d. 4. jan. 1715.
* Cf. 2Cor 12:9: “My grace is sufficient
for thee.” Vulgate: “sufficit tibi gratia mea”. – The name “Jova,”
albeit an abbreviation of the Biblical “Jehova,” is in the
same time an elegant allusion to the classical name “Jovis” of
Jupiter, father of the gods.
Let others be satisfied with anything: for me the grace of Jehova
/ is sufficient, even if I am in want of everything else. *
With this I want to recommend myself into the
memory of the eminent and noble possessor of this album
J. D. Kempenaer
from the church of the Hague
In the Hague, on January 4, 1715.
131. The Hague, January 4, 1715
Kempenaer, Jacobus de
(1666-1726), Dutch pastor
Jacobus de Kempenaer was born on September 5, 1666 in Amsterdam.
He was immatriculated on September 4, 1683 at the faculty of
philosophy of the academy of Franeker. In 1692 he became pastor of
Pingjum, and after two years of Bolsward. From 1697 he was pastor
in Haarlem, and from 1706 in The Hague. He died on April 3, 1726.
Kempenaer made his note in the Album of Ferenc Pápai Páriz in
January of 1715, when he was pastor in The Hague. The Album
preserves another note from The Hague, written in the previous
December by the German physician Joannes Aegidius Euth living in
that town (p. 192). – Another note of Kempenaer,
written on July 1, 1721, can be read in the Album of the pastor Guilielmus Wigboldi
fil. Muilman (1697-1759) [Den Haag, Koninklijke Bibliotheek, 74 H 26].
