Orestes
[1190] Ah, Phoebus! you proclaimed in song unclear justice, but you have brought about clear woes, and granted me a bloody destiny far from the land of Hellas. To what other city can I go? [1195] What host, what pious man will look at me, who killed my mother?

Electra
Ah me! Where can I go, to what dance, to what marriage? What husband will receive me [1200] into the bridal bed?

Chorus
Again, again your thought changes with the breeze; for now you think piously, though you did not before, and you did dreadful things, [1205] my dear, to your unwilling brother.
