But tell me, how come you're so squalid?
I have just left Patrocles' house, who has not had a bath since
But your infirmity; how did that happen? Tell me.
Zeus inflicted it on me, because of his jealousy of-mankind.
When I was young, I threatened him that I would only go to the just,
the wise, the men of ordered life; to prevent my distinguishing these,
he struck me with blindness' so much does he envy the good!
And yet, it's only the upright and just who honour him.
