Obnoxia infirmitas.

Weakness is vulnerable

Emblema clxix.

Pisciculos Aurata rapit medio aequore sardas,
Ni fugiant pavidae, summa marísque petant.
Ast ibi sunt mergis fulicísque voracibus esca.
Eheu intuta manens undique debilitas!

The little sardines the golden wrasse swallows in the depths of the ocean, unless in fear they flee and make for the surface of the sea. But there they provide a meal for greedy divers and other sea-birds. Alas for weakness, remaining everywhere at risk.

UT nullo non loco ditiores, & qui sunt fortuna
ampliore, tutum in praesidium se recipiunt: ita
miseri, & aliqua parte infirmi homines praecipites
in exitium ruunt, quocunque fugiant: nam ubi è
suorum lapsi telis, ad exteros venerint, ibi miserè
periclitantur & occidunt.

Que la foiblesse est sujette à malheur.

LA Dorade poursuit les petites Sardaignes,
Qui fuyent dans la mer ne se pouvans sauver:
Mais le Plongeon illec les sçait tresbien trouver,
Ou la Poulle de mer, & en font gorges pleines
Làs, le malheur qui suyt la foible pauvreté,
Qui mettre ne se peust jamais à sauveté.

COmme les riches, & ceux qui ont de
grans moyens, en quelque lieu qu’ils se
rencontrent, se sauvent & se mettent à seur-
té: ainsi les pauvres gens, & autres qui sont
aucunement souffreteux, quelque part qu’ils
fuyent, sont tousjours malheureux. car quand
il [=ils] sont eschappez des menees qui leurs estoient
brassees par ceux du pays, s’estans rendus
chez les estrangers, ilz y trouvent leur rui-
ne, & y meurent.

Das CXC [=189] .

Wolgeplagte Armut.

Die Goldbraßmen im mitten Meer
Die Fischlein Sardein engstet sehr
Wann sie nicht fliehen also gschwind
Zu öberst sie gefressen sind
Aber da werdens graubt zur Speiß
Von Breßlin und Merchen on greiß
Ach Gott wie ist die arm schwachheit
An allen orten nider gleidt.
