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

shown below.



Death to the Nobleman:

No come here, you noble warrior,

You must nurse your manliness here.

With Death, who spares no man,

Make the sign of the cross, then you will be rewarded.


The Nobleman:

I have terrified quite many men,

Who were covered by armour.

Now the ugly Death fights with me,

And really brings me in great distress.
