All hail the marriage! in which two bridegrooms shared; the one, a mortal; [800] the other, Zeus, who came to wed the bride sprung from Perseus; for that marriage of yours, O Zeus, in days gone by has been proved to me a true story beyond all expectation; [805] and time has shown the brightness of Heracles' strength; for he emerged from caverns beneath the earth after leaving Pluto's halls below. To me you are a worthier lord [810] than that base-born king, who now lets it be plainly seen in this struggle between armed warriors, whether justice still finds favor in heaven.
