Chorus 720I shudder in terror at the goddess who lays ruin to homes, a goddess unlike other divinities, who is an unerring omen of evil to come. I shudder that the Erinys invoked by the father's prayer will fulfil the over-wrathful 725curses that Oedipus spoke in madness. This strife that will destroy his sons drives the Erinys to fulfillment.
