Kempis dell'Imitat. di Cristo L[ibro] III. C[apitolo] XXXIX.
Figliolo, commetti a Dio sempre la tua
causa, & Lui disporrà bene al suo tempo.
Commenda Domino vias tuas, & spera in eum,
Ipse benefaciet. *
atque doctissimo Domino Possessori, sui memoriam cum voto
omnigenae Prosperitatis, commendare voluit
Joannes Georgius Gullmannus
Londini, a. d. 2. Julij
* Ps 37:5: Vulgate: “Revela Domino viam
tuam et spera in eum et ipse faciet.” Also quoted in an
abbreviated form by Johann Huldreich Heyden on
Kempis, Following of Christ, 3.39 [5.33.]
My son, recommend your things always to God, and He will arrange
them in due time.
Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in
him; and he shall bring it to pass. *
With this I want to recommend myself into
the memory of the generous and learned owner [of this book],
wishing him all kind of success
