Here is today's emblem and distich by Bornitius, 5:23. You can see the proverbial man who has dug a pit for another falling into that pit himself.

Per quod quis peccat, per idem punitur et idem;
Incidit insidias, quas alii peperit.

The vocabulary is keyed to the DCC Latin Vocabulary list. There are three words which are not on the DCC list:

insidiae, insidiārum - ambush, snare, treachery
pūnio -īre, pūnīvī, pūnītum - punish
tālio, tāliōnis f. - retaliation, punishment in kind

aliquis -quae -quod: some, any; si quis, si quid: anyone who, anything that
alius -a -um: other, another
et: and
īdem, eadem, idem: the same
incido -ere incidī: fall upon, fall into; happen
pario -ere peperī partum: bring forth, give birth to; accomplish
pecco -āre: commit a wrong, injure
per: through (+acc.)
qui, quae, quod: who, which, what; quis quid: who? what? which?
