Page 171 - Le Seigneur a détruit la reine des cités : Ses prêtres sont captifs , ses rois sont rejetés. Dieu ne veut plus qu'on vienne à ses solennités.
Page 162 - Si tu n'es pas un dieu caché sous la forme d'un mortel, tu es sans doute un étranger que les Satyres ont égaré comme moi dans les bois. Dans quel port est entré ton vaisseau ? Viens-tu de Tyr, si célèbre par la richesse de ses marchands? Viens-tu de la charmante Corinthe, où tes hôtes t'auront fait de riches présents?
