77

Chorus But, gods of our race, hear, and regard with favor the cause of righteousness; if you refuse youth 80fulfillment of its arrogant desires, and readily abhor violence, you would be righteous toward marriage. Even for those who flee hard-pressed from war there is an altar, 85a shelter against harm through respect for the powers of heaven.
