It is loved by all the gods, is it not, according to what you said?


For this reason, because it is holy, or for some other reason?

No, for this reason.

It is loved because it is holy, not holy because it is loved?

I think so.

But that which is dear to the gods is dear to them and beloved by them because they love it.
