Nothing is curseder than an avarice man. What (or Why) art thou proud, thou earth and ashes? Nothing is worse, than for to love money; for why this man hath, yea, his soul set to (or for) sale, for in his life he hath cast away his innerest things. [Forsooth than the avarice man nothing is more full of hideous guilt. What pridest thou, earth and ashes? Nothing is more wicked, than to love money; this forsooth hath his soul sellable, or able to be sold, for in his life he threw away his inward things.]
