First Know Yourself Then Know Others in Japanese is 先づ自己を知れ而して他を知れ which is read mazu onore wo shire shikashite ta wo shire. The original Japanese uses "dzu" which is no longer used and has been replaced by "zu" in modern Japanese. Most renditions of the Niju Kun use the original form, though one does commonly see both. We have opted to use the original "dzu" so "mazu" is actually written "madzu". The trick is even though it is written "madzu" it is still pronounced "mazu".
