Chorus 630Divinely-born gods! Hear now as I pour forth libations for blessings upon our kindred. Never may the wanton lord of war, 635insatiate of battle-cry, Ares, who reaps a human harvest in alien fields, destroy this Pelasgian land by fire; for they had compassion for us, 640and cast a vote in our favor, respecting our pitiable flock, suppliants in the name of Zeus.
