EMBLEMA XXVI.

Cernis ut hic caelum foedo qui conspuit ore,
Non caelum, immo suos conspuit ipse sinus?
Et tu caelorum Domini contemptor, in illum
Non quot verba iacis, tot tibi probra vomis?

Do you see how this man who with filthy mouth spits at the heavens, in fact spits not at the sky but at his own bosom below? And you who scorn the Lord’s heaven, do you not throw as many words at Him as you spew infamy on yourself?
