Euripides, Hippolytus, 981-1000


οὐκ ἐγγελαστὴς τῶν ὁμιλούντων, πάτερto mock at friends is not my way, father, but I am still the same behind their backs as to their face. The very crime thou thinkest to catch me in, is just the one I am untainted with, for to this day have I kept me pure from women. Nor know I aught thereof, save what I hear


οὐκ οἶδ' ὅπως εἴποιμ' ἂν εὐτυχεῖν τιναI know not how to call happy any child of man; for that which was first has turned and now is last. Hippolytu


θνητῶν: τὰ γὰρ δὴ πρῶτ' ἀνέστραπται πάλιν.I know not how to call happy any child of man; for that which was first has turned and now is last. Hippolytu


πάτερ, μένος μὲν ξύντασίς τε σῶν φρενῶνFather, thy wrath and the tension of thy mind are terrible; yet this charge, specious though its arguments appear


δεινή: τὸ μέντοι πρᾶγμ', ἔχον καλοὺς λόγουςFather, thy wrath and the tension of thy mind are terrible; yet this charge, specious though its arguments appear


εἴ τις διαπτύξειεν οὐ καλὸν τόδε.becomes a calumny, if one lay it bare. Small skill have I in speaking to a crowd, but have a readier wit for comrades of mine own age and small companies. Yea, and this is as it should be; for they, whom the wise despise, are better qualified to speak before a mob.


ἐγὼ δ' ἄκομψος εἰς ὄχλον δοῦναι λόγονbecomes a calumny, if one lay it bare. Small skill have I in speaking to a crowd, but have a readier wit for comrades of mine own age and small companies. Yea, and this is as it should be; for they, whom the wise despise, are better qualified to speak before a mob.


ἐς ἥλικας δὲ κὠλίγους σοφώτερος:becomes a calumny, if one lay it bare. Small skill have I in speaking to a crowd, but have a readier wit for comrades of mine own age and small companies. Yea, and this is as it should be; for they, whom the wise despise, are better qualified to speak before a mob.


ἔχει δὲ μοῖραν καὶ τόδ': οἱ γὰρ ἐν σοφοῖςbecomes a calumny, if one lay it bare. Small skill have I in speaking to a crowd, but have a readier wit for comrades of mine own age and small companies. Yea, and this is as it should be; for they, whom the wise despise, are better qualified to speak before a mob.


φαῦλοι παρ' ὄχλῳ μουσικώτεροι λέγειν.becomes a calumny, if one lay it bare. Small skill have I in speaking to a crowd, but have a readier wit for comrades of mine own age and small companies. Yea, and this is as it should be; for they, whom the wise despise, are better qualified to speak before a mob.


ὅμως δ' ἀνάγκη, ξυμφορᾶς ἀφιγμένηςYet am I constrained under the present circumstances to break silence. And at the outset will I take the point which formed the basis of thy stealthy attack on me, designed to put me out of court unheard; dost see yon sun, this earth? These do not contain


γλῶσσάν μ' ἀφεῖναι. πρῶτα δ' ἄρξομαι λέγεινYet am I constrained under the present circumstances to break silence. And at the outset will I take the point which formed the basis of thy stealthy attack on me, designed to put me out of court unheard; dost see yon sun, this earth? These do not contain


ὅθεν μ' ὑπῆλθες πρῶτον ὡς διαφθερῶνYet am I constrained under the present circumstances to break silence. And at the outset will I take the point which formed the basis of thy stealthy attack on me, designed to put me out of court unheard; dost see yon sun, this earth? These do not contain


οὐκ ἀντιλέξοντ'. εἰσορᾷς φάος τόδεYet am I constrained under the present circumstances to break silence. And at the outset will I take the point which formed the basis of thy stealthy attack on me, designed to put me out of court unheard; dost see yon sun, this earth? These do not contain


καὶ γαῖαν: ἐν τοῖσδ' οὐκ ἔνεστ' ἀνὴρ ἐμοῦYet am I constrained under the present circumstances to break silence. And at the outset will I take the point which formed the basis of thy stealthy attack on me, designed to put me out of court unheard; dost see yon sun, this earth? These do not contain


οὐδ' ἢν σὺ μὴ φῇς, σωφρονέστερος γεγώς.for all thou dost deny it, chastity surpassing mine. To reverence God I count the highest knowledge, and to adopt as friends not those who attempt injustice, but such as would blush to propose to their companions aught disgraceful or pleasure them by shameful services;


ἐπίσταμαι γὰρ πρῶτα μὲν θεοὺς σέβεινfor all thou dost deny it, chastity surpassing mine. To reverence God I count the highest knowledge, and to adopt as friends not those who attempt injustice, but such as would blush to propose to their companions aught disgraceful or pleasure them by shameful services;


φίλοις τε χρῆσθαι μὴ ἀδικεῖν πειρωμένοιςfor all thou dost deny it, chastity surpassing mine. To reverence God I count the highest knowledge, and to adopt as friends not those who attempt injustice, but such as would blush to propose to their companions aught disgraceful or pleasure them by shameful services;


ἀλλ' οἷσιν αἰδὼς μήτ' ἐπαγγέλλειν κακὰfor all thou dost deny it, chastity surpassing mine. To reverence God I count the highest knowledge, and to adopt as friends not those who attempt injustice, but such as would blush to propose to their companions aught disgraceful or pleasure them by shameful services;


μήτ' ἀνθυπουργεῖν αἰσχρὰ τοῖσι χρωμένοι,:for all thou dost deny it, chastity surpassing mine. To reverence God I count the highest knowledge, and to adopt as friends not those who attempt injustice, but such as would blush to propose to their companions aught disgraceful or pleasure them by shameful services;
