Depicting the exchange between Death and the Advocate, this illustration is associated traditionally with the text

shown below.



Death to the Advocate:

No trick or flatter helps,

No postponement or appeal.

Death controls all lineages,

And also Ecclesiastical and Worldly law.

The Advocate:

From God is all law given,

As one finds in the books.

Nor Advocate may manipulate it,

But must hate the lie, love the truth.
