Andreas, lines 1135-1218

Andreas see the crowd prepare to kill the boy, but God’s power causes their weapons to melt like wax and the boy is freed.  Then the people cry out that they are now facing a famine.

The Devil appears in front of the crowd, tells them that Andreas is the source of their problems, and encourages them to attack him. Andreas  argues back at the Devil, noting that he has already been vanquished by God. The Devil again encourages the crowd to attack Andreas, and the crowd rushes to the gates of the city with weapons.
God then speaks to Andreas, telling him that he must reveal himself.  God says that Andreas will not be killed, although he will suffer beating.  He promises to remain with Andreas.
