Si quis convicium...

Here is today's Rhyming Distich, and here are some more posts with Rhyming Distichs. This one is from Zacher's Altfranzösische Sprichwörter.

Si quis convicium profert, illud patiatur;
Conviciumque ferat, aliis qui conviciatur.

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

convīcior, -ārī - revile, taunt, reproach
convīcium - outcry, abuse, insult

aliquis -quae -quod: some, any; si quis, si quid: anyone who, anything that
alius -a -um: other, another
fero ferre tulī lātum: bear, carry
ille, illa, illud: that
patior patī passus sum: permit, endure
profero -ferre -tūulī -lātum: bring forward or forth, extend
que: and (enclitic)
qui, quae, quod: who, which, what; quis quid: who? what? which?
sī: if
