The god, the son of Zeus, delights in banquets, and loves Peace, giver of riches,  goddess who nourishes youths. To the blessed and to the less fortunate, he gives an equal pleasure from wine that banishes grief. He hates the one who does not care about this:  to lead a happy life by day and friendly 1 night and to keep his wise mind and intellect away from over-curious men.  What the common people think and adopt, that would I accept.
