It's past belief to be so criminal and so imprudent!

Ah! you're not near the end of it yet.

[710] Little I care whence you come; you shall not return to boast of having acted so odiously with impunity, for you shall be punished.

You won't do it, by the gods!

[715] And what immortal would protect you for your crime?

You talk in vain! I shall not let go the child.

By the goddesses, you will not laugh presently [720] over your crime and your impious speech. For with impiety, as 'tis meet, shall we reply to your impiety. [725] Soon fortune will turn round and overwhelm you.

Leader of the Chorus
Come there, bring some firewood. Let's roast the wretch as quickly as we can.
