Le conseil punit comme le defail-
lant.

LV.

Selon que guerre en sa tempeste
Rend prospere ou dure saison,
Lon print l’adversaire trompette,
Qu’on mit en estroite prison,
Il s’excusoit sur la raison,
Qu’il n’a d’espee faict outrage:
Tu es (fit on) pire poison,
Car tu rends aux couards courage.[1]

En certaine guerre, les vainqueurs avoyent pris
un trompette, lequel ils traictoyent comme ennemi, le
garrottans & rudoyans, & peut estre frappans. Le
povre trompette se defendoit avec la langue, disant
qu’il n’avoit blecé aucun, qu’il n’avoit combattu con-
tre personne, n’ayant pour toutes armes que sa trom-
pette. Ses ennemis luy repliquent, O couard, en celà es
tu plus à reprendre: car tu te fourrant point aux coups,
tu incites les autres à combattre par le son effroyable
de ta trompe. Presques mesme recit se trouve aux fa-
bles d’Esope. A la verité ceux qui esguillonnent les
autres à mal faire, & les y persuadent, doyvent estre
plus rigoureusement chastiés que ceux qui commet-
tent les delicts.

PAREM DELINQUENTIS, ET
suasoris culpam esse.

The one who urges wrongdoing is as guilty as the one who does the wrong

Emblema 172.

Praeconem lituo perflantem classica victrix
Captivum in tetro carcere turma tenet.
Queis ille excusat, quod nec sit strenuus armis,
Ullius aut saevo laeserit ense latus.
Huic illi: Quin ipse magis timidissime peccas,
Qui clangore alios aeris in arma cies.[1]

The victorious troop holds captive in a foul dungeon a herald, who sounds military commands on his trumpet. To them he makes his excuses - he is no strong fighting man and has wounded no one’s side with a cruel sword. They reply: You abject coward, you are in fact more guilty, for you with the sound of your trumpet stir up others to fight.
