Thou, O king, hast made a decree
According to his own mind and will, and which he had published as such to his subjects: that every man;
let him be who he will, high or low, rich or poor, in whatsoever station or condition: that shall hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut,
psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of music;
such as had been just then blown or played on: shall fall down and worship the golden image;
which the king had ordered to be made and set up, and now dedicated, and had been worshipped by men of all ranks.
