Text on facing page:
VRAIMENT C'ETAIT NOS MALADIES
ET NOS DOULEURS DONT IL S'ÉTAIT CHARGÉ;
ET NOUS, NOUS LE REGARDIONS
COMME UN PUNI FRAPPÉ DE DIEU ET HUMILIÉ.
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. (Book of Isaiah, Chapter 53)
