TABULA VICESIMA QUARTA (pars quarta et ultima)

I did it out of consideration for you. Merito tuo hoc fecit. Σοῦ χάριν τοῦτο ἔπραξε.

This will result in your advantage. Utilitatem redundabit hoc ad tuam. Τοῦτό σοι εἰς ὄνησιν ἥξει.

You have taken a hard work. Provinciam cepisti duram. Χαλεπὸν ἔργον ἐπεχείρησας.

To punish somebody to teach the others a lesson. Exemplum severitatis in aliquo statuere (edere). Παράδειγμα σεμνότητος τοῖς ἄλλοις ποιεῖν τινα.

You are adding that of your own making (invention). De tuo illud addis. Ἀπὸ σαυτοῦ ἐκεῖνο προτίθης.

(Do it) without delay. Dicto citius. Abjecta omni cunctatione. Θᾶττον λόγου. Ἀμελλητί.

He’s as well hungry and thirsty. Et esurit et sitit. Καὶ πεινῇ καὶ διψῇ.

This man says he’s hot (he feels heat), and that one says he’s cold (he feels cold). Hic se calere (aestuare) dicit, ille se frigere (algere). Ὃ μὲν λέγει τεθέρμασθαι (θερμῶς ἔχειν), ὃ δὲ κατέψυχθαι (ῥιγῶν, ῥιγοῦν).

Today it’s hot, but yesterday it was cold. Hodie calor est, heri autem frigus (fuit). Σήμερον μὲν θερμός ἐστιν ὁ ἀήρ (θερμόν, θάλπος ἐστί), ἐχθὲς δὲ ψυχρὸς ἦν (ψῦχος ἦν).
