Thou hast gone into this oracle
With a true result. For me, then, -- I will
-- To the Daimon of the Pleisthenidai
Making an oath -- with all these things comply
Hard as they are to bear. For the rest --
Going from out this House, a guest,
May he wear some other family
To nought, with the deaths of kin by kin!
And, -- keeping a little part of my goods, --
Wholly am I contented in
Having expelled from the royal House
These frenzied moods
The mutually-murderous.
