Pagan justos por peccadores.

SEMIOTTAVA.

Muerde la piedra el perro, mas no sigue
A’l que se la tirò, como el que aquexa
A’l inocente y con furor persigue,
Y a'l que peccò sin pęna huyr le dexa.[1]

Notes:

1.  Cf. Aesop, Fables 235, where bees sting the wrong person. See Erasmus, Adagia 153, Cum larvis luctari, where the ‘puppy’ comparison is quoted from Aristotle (Rhetoric 3, 4). See also Plato, Republic 5.469E.
