Dicit Dominus: Implete hydrias aqua,
et ferte architriclino.
Cum gustasset architriclinus aquam vinum factam,
dicit sposo: Servasti vinum bonum usque adhuc.
Hoc signum fecit Jesus primum coram discipulis suis.

Iesvs saith to them, Fil the vvater-pottes vvith vvater.
[…] and carie to the cheefe stevvard.
And after the cheefe stevvard tasted the vvater made vvine,
[he] calleth the bridegrome, and saith to him,
But thou hast kept the good vvine until novv.
This beginning of miracles did IESUS in Cana of Galilee: and he manifested his glorie, and his disciples beleeued in him. (John 2:7ff, Rheims ver. 1635)
