Castigare Paratus

312     -     313     -     314

Castigare Paratus
Castigans alium, te castiga prius ipsum,
Ut, castigatus, sis castigare paratus.

Source: Florilegium Gottingense (ed. Voigt), 310. Meter: Dactylic Hexameter. Note the internal rhymes: alium-ipsum ... castigatus-paratus.

The vocabulary is keyed to the DCC Latin Vocabulary list. There is only one word in this poem that is not on the DCC list:

castīgo, castīgāre: chastise, reprimand, correct

alius -a -um: other, another
ipse, ipsa, ipsum: him- her- itself
paro -āre: prepare, acquire; parātus -a -um, ready
prior -ius: earlier, preceding; prius or priusquam, before
tū tuī tibi tē: you (sing.)
ut, uti: as (+ indic.); so that, with the result that (+ subj.)
