EMBLEMA XI.

Abstinentia.

Integrity

Marmoreae in tumulis, una stat parte columnae
Urceus, ex alia cernere malluvium est
Ius haec forma monet dictum sine sordibus esse
Defunctum puras atque habuisse manus.

On a tomb, at one side of the marble pillar, stands a water-jug, at the other you can see a basin. This design tells us that justice was pronounced without corruption, and that the deceased kept his hands clean.

Das XI.

Abbruch.

Ein Krug gemacht au▀ Marmelstein
Steht wie ein Seul auff dem Eck ein
De▀ Steinern Tisch, auffm andern Eck
Aber findstu ston ein Handbeck
Di▀ bild ermannt das gschriben Recht
Sol rein seyn und on wandel schlecht
Und de▀ Richters Hend sollen seyn
Von allen miet und gaben rein.

    Integrity

    Emblema xxxi.

    Marmoreae in tumulis una stat parte columnae
    Urceus, ex alia cernere malluvium est.
    Ius haec forma monet dictum sine sordibus esse,
    Defunctum puras atque habuisse manus.

    On a tomb, at one side of the marble pillar, stands a water-jug, at the other you can see a basin. This design tells us that justice was pronounced without corruption, and that the deceased kept his hands clean.

    PRoponit cenotaphio iudicis aequissimi duo
    symbola, urceum & malluvium, quibus in iure
    dicundo summa integritas, & abstinentia designa-
    tur Ó muneribus capiundis. Caeter¨m manuum a-
    bluendarum gestus olim fuit innocentiae aperta
    quaedam demostratio [=demonstratio] : quod ex sacris & externis
    auctoribus cognosci potest.

    S’abstenir de prendre presens.

    D’Un coustÚ du tombeau est une aiguiere mise,
    De l’autre[1] est un bassin: qui sert d’une devise,
    Pour un juge defunct, agreable & adroit,
    Qui eut nettes les mains, faisant justice & droict.

    SUr le tombeau d’un tresbon juge il met
    deux marques, assavoir une aiguiere, &
    un lavemain ou bassin: par lesquelles est si-
    gnifiee l’integritÚ du personnage fort gran-
    de, & qu’il s’est abstenu de prendre dons &
    presens. Au reste la coustume de laver les
    mains fut anciennement usitee pour prote-
    station d’innocence: comme il se peut veoir
    par les autheurs sacrez & profanes.
