LIJSKEN DIRCKS

Hier Volghet noch eenen Brief van Jeronimus Segersz aen zijn Huysvrou.

Genade, vrede, vruechde van herten, door die bekentenisse Jesu Christi sy met u mijn lieve huysvrouwe Lijsken inden Heere. Ick wunsche u mijn lieve Huysvrouwe Lijsken een vyerige liefde tot God, ende een vrolijck gemoet in Christo Jesu. Weet dat ick uwer [Rom.1.a.5.] gedencke dach ende nacht in mijn ghebedt, smeeckende ende suchtende tot Godt voor u, Want ick al bedroeft ben, om uwent wille, om dat ghy daer so lange sult moeten sitten, ende wilde wel, waert des Heeren wil geweest, dat ghy uten banden geweest hadt, maer nu hevet des Heeren wille anders geweest, om dat hy u proeven wil, ende zijn cracht ende stercheyt aen u openbaren, tegen alle die tegen die waerheyt staen. Aldus en can ick tegen des Heeren wille niet gedoen, op dat ick hem niet en tenteere, dan ick wil hem veel meer loven ende dancken, dat hy ons beyde [Act.5.e.42.] weerdich ghemaeckt heeft om zijnen naem te lijden, want het zijn al te uutvercoren Schaepkens, die hy daer toe vercoren heeft, want hy heeftse [Apo.14.a.4.] ghecocht uten menschen tot eerstelingen Gods.

Aldus en connen wy den Heere niet [Tobi.13.a.2.] ont-loopen, Daerom en laet ons niet bedroeft zijn om dat werck des Heeren, maer veel meer (als [Mat.5 a.12.] Christus seyt) ons verblijden ende vrolijck zijn.
