Chorus
These, then, are at once your daughters, and—

Oedipus
[535] —Sisters, indeed, of their father.

Chorus
Oh!

Oedipus
Indeed, woes untold sweep back upon my soul!

Chorus
You have suffered—

Oedipus
I have suffered woes grievous to bear.

Chorus
You have performed—

Oedipus
I have not performed!

Chorus
How?

Oedipus
[540] A gift was given to me—O, wretched that I am, if only I had never won from the city that gift for my services!
