Ah, you who spy out all things, [380] you ready tool of every crime, ah, son of Laertes, you filthiest sneak in all the army, I am sure you laugh loud and long for joy!

It is at the god's dispensation that every man both laughs and mourns.

Yet if only I could see him, even shattered as I am! [385] Oh! Oh!

Make no big threats! Do you not see the trouble you are in?

O Zeus, forefather of my forebears, if only I might destroy that deep dissembler, that hateful sneak, and [390] the two brother-kings, and finally die myself, also!
