Que no se de hazer mal ninguno con
palabra ni con obra.

Ottava rhima.

El freno lleva en la siniestra mano
Y en la otra el cobdo siniestro sostiene
La vengadora de echo dicho insano
Nemesis, que en justiia a’l mundo tiene.
Y vieda a’l injurioso estar ufano
Siguiendo sus pisadas, do proviene
Por causa de esta justa mediania
Ni mal hazer, ni hablar descortesia.

Prudentes.

The Wise.

EMBLEMA XVIII.

Iane bifrons, qui iam transacta futuraque calles,
Quique retro sannas, sicut & ant, vides:[1]
Tot te cur oculis, tot fingunt vultibus? an qud
Circumspectum hominem forma fuisse docet?

Two-headed Janus, you know about what has already happened and what is yet to come, you see the jeering faces behind just as you see them in front. Why do they represent you with so many eyes, why with so many faces? Is it because this form tells us that you were a man of circumspection?

Notes:

1. quique retro sannas, sicut et ante, vides, ‘you see the jeering faces behind just as you see them in front’, a line based on Persius, Satirae, 1.58-62.
