Did you hear, O Zeus and earth and light of the sun, what a wail the miserable [150] woman utters? What is this desire you feel for the bed of death, the bed we should not approach, foolish woman? Death will come all too quickly: do not pray for it. [155] But if your husband holds another marriage-bed in honor, do not vex yourself on his account: Zeus will be your advocate in this. Do not grieve excessively or weep over your husband.
