Prometheus
I know that Zeus is harsh and [190] keeps justice in his own hands; but nevertheless one day his judgement will soften, when he has been crushed in the way that I know.1Then, calming down his stubborn wrath, he shall at last bond with me in union and friendship, [195] as eager as I am to welcome him.

1 A veiled allusion to the secret hinted at in l.171.
