The notes here are taken from the actual Scala, so be warned that references to the "previous" proverb refer to its order in the Scala, not its order here. You can read more about the word at the Verbosum blog: REDIMO.

Redimo vitia virtutibus. ~ Note: This saying is adapted from one of the controversiae of Seneca the Elder.

Sicut ager colitur, sic fructibus hic redimitur. ~ Note: Here is a more basic version of the saying: Ut ager colitur, ita dat fructus.

Tamquam si quis crucifigeret Paulum ut redimeret Petrum. ~ Note: Compare the English saying, "Robbing Peter to play Paul."
