“For that power haven not we

And elles but he wele him hele sende,
Be vs get he non In non Ende.”
Thanne Axede him the king Anon tho
‘Howgh Ayens the Egipciens he scholde do;

In what Manere it myhte him Availle.’

Tyl that goddis Man be Owt past,
Of vs An Answere non thow hast.”

“I Conioure the be the vertu of God Almyht,
And be the myht Also Of the Trenite,
That the sothe here thou schewe to me.”
And the devel him Answerid Agein

Of thing that was to Come, he Cowde not telle,
What Aventure so that him Euere befelle.”
