Multi Peccant

Here is today's distich by Michele Verinus:

Multi Peccant
Quae sine labe caro? Quae non obnoxia culpae est?
Quem non invenies criminis esse reum?

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

caro, carnis f. - flesh, meat
lābes, lābis f. - spot, blemish, defect, disgrace
obnoxius -a -um - subject to punishment, liable, exposed

crīmen -inis n.: verdict, accusation
culpa -ae f.: guilt, fault, blame
inveniō -venīre -vēnī -ventum: find; discover
multus -a -um: much, many; multō, by far
nōn: not
peccō -āre: commit a wrong, injure
qui quae quod: who, which, what / quis quid: who? what? which?
reus -ī m.: defendant
sine: without (+ abl.)
sum, esse, fuī: be, exist
