(Chorus to Clytemnestra): "Great indeed and heavy in its anger
for this house is the demon you praise –
no! no! it is wrong, this praising is wicked – insatiable for ruin's success –
oh, grief indeed! – through Zeus
the all-causing, the all-doing.
For what is fulfilled for mortals without Zeus?
What is there in things here which god has not ordained?" (1481-1488)
