Luke Chapter 2 . 1-19 : American Standard Version of 1901

[ 1 ] Now it happened in those days , that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be enrolled . [ 2 ] This was the first enrollment made when Quirinius was governor of Syria . [ 3 ] All went to enroll themselves , everyone to his own city .

[ 4 ] Joseph also went up from Galilee , out of the city of Nazareth , into Judea , to the city of David , which is called Bethlehem , because he was of the house and family of David ; [ 5 ] to enroll himself with Mary , who was pledged to be married to him as wife , being great with child . [ 6 ] It happened , while they were there , that the day had come that she should give birth . [ 7 ] She brought forth her firstborn son , and she wrapped him in bands of cloth , and laid him in a feeding trough , because there was no room for them in the inn .

[ 8 ] There were shepherds in the same country staying in the field , and keeping watch by night over their flock . [ 9 ] Behold , an angel of the Lord stood by them , and the glory of the Lord shone around them , and they were terrified . [ 10 ] The angel said to them , " Don ' t be afraid , for behold , I bring you good news of great joy which will be to all the people . [ 11 ] For there is born to you , this day , in the city of David , a Savior , who is Christ the Lord . [ 12 ] This is the sign to you : you will find a baby wrapped in strips of cloth , lying in a feeding trough . "

[ 13 ] Suddenly , there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God , and saying , [ 14 ] " Glory to God in the highest , On earth peace , good will toward men . "

[ 15 ] It happened , when the angels went away from them into the sky , that the shepherds said one to another , " Let ' s go to Bethlehem , now , and see this thing that has happened , which the Lord has made known to us . " [ 16 ] They came with haste , and found both Mary and Joseph , and the baby lying in the feeding trough . [ 17 ] When they saw it , they publicized widely the saying which was spoken to them about this child .

[ 18 ] All who heard it wondered at the things which were spoken to them by the shepherds . [ 19 ] But Mary kept all these sayings , pondering them in her heart .
Luke Chapter 2 . 1-19 : Westcott and Hort , edd . 1885 .

[ 1 ] Ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις ἐξῆλθεν δόγμα παρὰ Καίσαρος Αὐγούστου ἀπογράφεσθαι πᾶσαν τὴν οἰκουμένην : [ 2 ] (αὕτη ἀπογραφὴ πρώτη ἐγένετο ἡγεμονεύοντος τῆς Συρίας Κυρηνίου : [ 3 ] καὶ ἐπορεύοντο πάντες ἀπογράφεσθαι , ἔκαστος εἰς τὴν ἑαυτοῦ πόλιν .

[ 4 ] Ἀνέβη δὲ καὶ Ἰωσὴφ ἀπὸ τῆς Γαλιλαίας ἐκ πόλεως Ναζαρὲτ εἰς τὴν Ἰουδαίαν εἰς πόλιν Δαυεὶδ ἥτις καλεῖται Βηθλεἐμ , διὰ τὸ εἶναι αὐτὸν ἐξ οἴκου καὶ πατριᾶς Δαυείδ , [ 5 ] ἀπογράψασθαι σὺν Μαριὰμ τῇ ἐμνηστευμένῃ αὐτῷ , οὔσῃ ἐνκύῳ . [ 6 ] Ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν τῷ εἶναι αὐτοὺς ἐκεῖ ἐπλήσθησαν αἱ ἡμέραι τοῦ τεκεῖν αὐτήν , [ 7 ] καὶ ἔτεκεν τὸν υἱὸν αὐτῆς τὸν πρωτότοκον , καὶ ἐσπαργάνωσεν αὐτὸν καὶ ἀνέκλινεν αὐτὸν ἐν φάτνῃ , διότι οὐκ ἦν αὐτοῖς τόπος ἐν τῷ καταλύματι .

[ 8 ] Καὶ ποιμένες ἦσαν ἐν τῇ χώρᾳ τῇ αὐτῇ ἀγραυλοῦντες καὶ φυλάσσοντες φυλακὰς τῆς νυκτὸς ἐπὶ τὴν ποίμνην αὐτῶν . [ 9 ] καὶ ἄγγελος Κυρίου ἐπέστη αὐτοῖς καὶ δόξα Κυρίου περιέλαμψεν αὐτούς , καὶ ἐφοβήθησαν φόβον μέγαν : [ 10 ] καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ἄγγελος Μὴ φοβεῖσθε , ἰδοὺ γὰρ εὐαγγελίζομαι ὑμῖν χαρὰν μεγάλην ἥτις ἔσται παντὶ τῷ λαῷ , [ 11 ] ὅτι ἐτέχθη ὑμῖν σήμερον σωτὴρ ὅς ἐστιν χριστὸς κύριος ἐν πόλει Δαυείδ : [ 12 ] καὶ τοῦτο ὑμῖν σημεῖον , εὑρήσετε βρέφος ἐσπαργανωμένον καὶ κείμενον ἐν φάτνῃ .

[ 13 ] καὶ ἐξέφνης ἐγένετο σὺν τῷ ἀγγέλῳ πλῆθος στρατιᾶς οὐρανίου αἰνούντων τὸν θεὸν καὶ λεγόντων [ 14 ] " Δόξα ἐν ὑψίστοις θεῷ καὶ ἐπὶ γῆς εἰρήνη ἐν ἀνθρώποις εὐδοκίας . "

[ 15 ] Καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἀπῆλθον ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν εἰς τὸν οὐρανὸν οἱ ἄγγελοι , οἱ ποιμένες ἐλάλουν πρὸς ἀλλήλους Διέλθωμεν δὴ ἕως Βηθλεὲμ καὶ ἴδωμεν τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο τὸ γεγονὸς κύριος ἐγνώρισεν ἡμῖν . [ 16 ] καὶ ἦλθαν σπεύσαντες καὶ ἀνεῦραν τήν τε Μαριὰμ καὶ τὸν Ἰωσὴφ καὶ τὸ βρέφος κείμενον ἐν τῇ φάτνῃ : [ 17 ] ἰδόντες δὲ ἐγνώρισαν περὶ τοῦ ῥήματος τοῦ λαληθέντος αὐτοῖς περὶ τοῦ παιδίου τούτου .

[ 18 ] καὶ πάντες οἱ ἀκούσαντες ἐθαύμασαν περὶ τῶν λαληθέντων ὑπὸ τῶν ποιμένων πρὸς αὐτούς , [ 19 ] δὲ Μαρία πάντα συνετήρει τὰ ῥήματα ταῦτα συνβάλλουσα ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ αὐτῆς .
Luke Chapter 2 . 1-19 : King James Version . 1620 .

[ 1 ] And it came to pass in those days , that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed . [ 2 ] ( And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria . ) [ 3 ] And all went to be taxed , every one into his own city .

[ 4 ] And Joseph also went up from Galilee , out of the city of Nazareth , into Judaea , unto the city of David , which is called Bethlehem ; ( because he was of the house and lineage of David : ) [ 5 ] To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife , being great with child . [ 6 ] And so it was , that , while they were there , the days were accomplished that she should be delivered . [ 7 ] And she brought forth her firstborn son , and wrapped him in swaddling clothes , and laid him in a manger ; because there was no room for them in the inn .

[ 8 ] And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field , keeping watch over their flock by night . [ 9 ] And , lo , the angel of the Lord came upon them , and the glory of the Lord shone round about them : and they were sore afraid . [ 10 ] And the angel said unto them , Fear not : for , behold , I bring you good tidings of great joy , which shall be to all people . [ 11 ] For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour , which is Christ the Lord . [ 12 ] And this shall be a sign unto you ; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes , lying in a manger .

[ 13 ] And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God , and saying , [ 14 ] Glory to God in the highest , and on earth peace , good will toward men .

[ 15 ] And it came to pass , as the angels were gone away from them into heaven , the shepherds said one to another , Let us now go even unto Bethlehem , and see this thing which is come to pass , which the Lord hath made known unto us . [ 16 ] And they came with haste , and found Mary , and Joseph , and the babe lying in a manger . [ 17 ] And when they had seen it , they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child .

[ 18 ] And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds . [ 19 ] But Mary kept all these things , and pondered them in her heart .

Andromache came close to his side weeping , and clasped his hand and spake to him , saying : Ah , my husband , this prowess of thine will be thy doom , neither hast thou any pity for thine infant child nor for hapless me that soon shall be thy widow ; for soon will the Achaeans all set upon thee and slay thee . But for me it were better to go down to the grave if I lose thee , for nevermore shall any comfort be mine , when thou hast met thy fate , but only woes . Neither father have I nor queenly mother . My father verily goodly Achilles slew , for utterly laid he waste the well-peopled city of the Cilicians , even Thebe of lofty gates . He slew Eëtion , yet he despoiled him not , for his soul had awe of that ; but he burnt him in his armour , richly dight , and heaped over him a barrow ; and all about were elm-trees planted by nymphs of the mountain , daughters of Zeus that beareth the aegis .
405 Ἀνδρομάχη δέ οἱ ἄγχι παρίστατο δάκρυ χέουσα ,
406 ἔν τʼ ἄρα οἱ φῦ χειρὶ ἔπος τʼ ἔφατʼ ἔκ τʼ ὀνόμαζε ·
407 δαιμόνιε φθίσει σε τὸ σὸν μένος , οὐδʼ ἐλεαίρεις
408 παῖδά τε νηπίαχον καὶ ἔμʼ ἄμμορον , τάχα χήρη
409 σεῦ ἔσομαι · τάχα γάρ σε κατακτανέουσιν Ἀχαιοὶ
410 πάντες ἐφορμηθέντες · ἐμοὶ δέ κε κέρδιον εἴη
411 σεῦ ἀφαμαρτούσῃ χθόνα δύμεναι · οὐ γὰρ ἔτʼ ἄλλη
412 ἔσται θαλπωρὴ ἐπεὶ ἂν σύ γε πότμον ἐπίσπῃς
413 ἀλλʼ ἄχεʼ · οὐδέ μοι ἔστι πατὴρ καὶ πότνια μήτηρ .
414 ἤτοι γὰρ πατέρʼ ἁμὸν ἀπέκτανε δῖος Ἀχιλλεύς ,
415 ἐκ δὲ πόλιν πέρσεν Κιλίκων εὖ ναιετάουσαν
416 Θήβην ὑψίπυλον · κατὰ δʼ ἔκτανεν Ἠετίωνα ,
417 οὐδέ μιν ἐξενάριξε , σεβάσσατο γὰρ τό γε θυμῷ ,
418 ἀλλʼ ἄρα μιν κατέκηε σὺν ἔντεσι δαιδαλέοισιν
419 ἠδʼ ἐπὶ σῆμʼ ἔχεεν · περὶ δὲ πτελέας ἐφύτευσαν
420 νύμφαι ὀρεστιάδες κοῦραι Διὸς αἰγιόχοιο .
Andromache stood by him weeping and taking his hand in her own . " Dear husband , " said she , " your valor will bring you to destruction ; think on your infant son , and on my hapless self who ere long shall be your widow - for the Achaeans will set upon you in a body and kill you . It would be better for me , should I lose you , to lie dead and buried , for I shall have nothing left to comfort me when you are gone , save only sorrow . I have neither father nor mother now . Achilles slew my father when he sacked Thebe the goodly city of the Cilicians . He slew him , but did not for very shame despoil him ; when he had burned him in his wondrous armor , he raised a barrow over his ashes and the mountain nymphs , daughters of aegis-bearing Zeus , planted a grove of elms about his tomb .

Chorus
Oh famous Salamis , you always dwell sea-beaten , blessed , well-seen by all . I lay kenneled suffering for a long time remaining in Trojan meadows for countless months , wasting away with time , holding a wicked expectation until the time when I will finish my journey to backwards , unseen Hades . And difficult to cure Ajax is lying by near to me -oh me ! - he dwelling with divine madness . He whom powerful you sent out truly once before into furious Ares . But now , again feeding alone in his mind he has been discovered a great pain to his friends . And the deeds of greatness and excellence by his two hands fell down friendless fell down by the unfriendly , miserable Atreidae .
Chorus
Oh renowned Salamis , you live on sea-beaten , blessed and always a beacon to humans . But I long suffering away from you for ages remain on the Trojan plain for countless unending months and lay kenneled , wasting away with time . I hold a wretched expectation until the moment when I will finish my trudging journey to evil , invisible Hades . And now incurable Ajax is with me as an ally in a fight , but oh , he dwells in divine madness . Truly once before you sent that powerful one to furious Ares , but now he foraging alone in his mind has been found a great sorrow to his dear ones . The deeds of greatness and excellence made before by his two hands fell into the dust friendless , fell before the unfriendly , miserable Atreidae .

Τεῦκρος

τῶν ἁπάντων δὴ θεαμάτων ἐμοὶ
ἄλγιστον ὧν προσεῖδον ὀφθαλμοῖς ἐγώ ,
ὁδός θ᾽ ὁδῶν πασῶν ἀνιάσασα δὴ
μάλιστα τοὐμὸν σπλάγχνον , ἣν δὴ νῦν ἔβην .
φίλτατ᾽ Αἴας , τὸν σὸν ὡς ἐπῃσθόμην
μόρον διώκων κἀξιχνοσκοπούμενος .
ὀξεῖα γάρ σου βάξις ὡς θεοῦ τινος
διῆλθ᾽ Ἀχαιοὺς πάντας ὡς οἴχει θανών .
ἁγὼ κλύων δύστηνος ἐκποδὼν μὲν ὢν
ὑπεστέναζον , νῦν δ᾽ ὁρῶν ἀπόλλυμαι .
οἴμοι .
ἴθ᾽ , ἐκκάλυψον , ὡς ἴδω τὸ πᾶν κακόν .
δυσθέατον ὄμμα καὶ τόλμης πικρᾶς ,
ὅσας ἀνίας μοι κατασπείρας φθίνεις .
ποῖ γὰρ μολεῖν μοι δυνατόν , εἰς ποίους βροτούς ,
τοῖς σοῖς ἀρήξαντ᾽ ἐν πόνοισι μηδαμοῦ ;
πού με Τελαμών , σὸς πατὴρ ἐμός θ᾽ ἅμα ,
δέξαιτ᾽ ἂν εὐπρόσωπος ἵλεώς τ᾽ ἴσως
χωροῦντ᾽ ἄνευ σοῦ . πῶς γὰρ οὔχ ; ὅτῳ πάρα
μηδ᾽ εὐτυχοῦντι μηδὲν ἥδιον γελᾶν .
οὗτος τί κρύψει ; ποῖον οὐχ ἐρεῖ κακὸν
τὸν ἐκ δορὸς γεγῶτα πολεμίου νόθον ,
τὸν δειλίᾳ προδόντα καὶ κακανδρίᾳ
σέ , φίλτατ᾽ Αἴας , δόλοισιν , ὡς τὰ σὰ
κράτη θανόντος καὶ δόμους νέμοιμι σούς .
τοιαῦτ᾽ ἀνὴρ δύσοργος , ἐν γήρᾳ βαρύς ,
ἐρεῖ , πρὸς οὐδὲν εἰς ἔριν θυμούμενος .
τέλος δ᾽ ἀπωστὸς γῆς ἀπορριφθήσομαι ,
δοῦλος λόγοισιν ἀντ᾽ ἐλευθέρου φανείς .
τοιαῦτα μὲν κατ᾽ οἶκον : ἐν Τροίᾳ δέ μοι
πολλοὶ μὲν ἐχθροί , παῦρα δ᾽ ὠφελήσιμα .
καὶ ταῦτα πάντα σοῦ θανόντος ηὑρόμην .
οἴμοι , τί δράσω ; πῶς σ᾽ ἀποσπάσω πικροῦ :
τοῦδ᾽ αἰόλου κνώδοντος , τάλας , ὑφ᾽ οὗ
φονέως ἄρ᾽ ἐξέπνευσας ; εἶδες ὡς χρόνῳ
ἔμελλέ σ᾽ Ἕκτωρ καὶ θανὼν ἀποφθίσειν ;
σκέψασθε , πρὸς θεῶν , τὴν τύχην δυοῖν βροτοῖν .
Ἕκτωρ μέν , δὴ τοῦδ᾽ ἐδωρήθη πάρα ,
ζωστῆρι πρισθεὶς ἱππικῶν ἐξ ἀντύγων
ἐκνάπτετ᾽ αἰέν , ἔστ᾽ ἀπέψυξεν βίον :
οὗτος δ᾽ ἐκείνου τήνδε δωρεὰν ἔχων
πρὸς τοῦδ᾽ ὄλωλε θανασίμῳ πεσήματι .
ἆρ᾽ οὐκ Ἐρινὺς τοῦτ᾽ ἐχάλκευσεν ξίφος
κἀκεῖνον Ἅιδης , δημιουργὸς ἄγριος ;
ἐγὼ μὲν οὖν καὶ ταῦτα καὶ τὰ πάντ᾽ ἀεὶ
φάσκοιμ᾽ ἂν ἀνθρώποισι μηχανᾶν θεούς :
ὅτῳ δὲ μὴ τάδ᾽ ἐστὶν ἐν γνώμῃ φίλα ,
κεῖνός τ᾽ ἐκεῖνα στεργέτω κἀγὼ τάδε .

Χορός

μὴ τεῖνε μακράν , ἀλλ᾽ ὅπως κρύψεις τάφῳ
φράζου τὸν ἄνδρα χὤ τι μυθήσει τάχα .
βλέπω γὰρ ἐχθρὸν φῶτα , καὶ τάχ᾽ ἂν κακοῖς
γελῶν δὴ κακοῦργος ἐξίκοιτ᾽ ἀνήρ .
Teucer
Oh truly , I see the most painful thing to me of all spectacles , and this is truly the most sorrowful road of all roads with respect to my heart , which I made now , as , oh beloved Ajax , while pursuing and tracking I learned your fate . For a sharp rumor about you as if from some god spread throughout the Achaeans how you dying are ruined . Hearing this from far away wretched I certainly was moaning low , and now seeing I am utterly destroyed . Oh god ! Go , uncover him , so I might see the entire evil . Oh body of bitter daring difficult to see , you having sowed such great grief for me are wasted away . For where am I able to go , to what kind of mortals , when I aided your work in no way ? For doubtless Telemon , your father and mine at the same time , might accept me returning without you with glad countenance kindly and fairly . How not ? To whom being accustomed to smile not more pleasantly not even being fortunate . What will this one hide ? Will he not say some sort of bad thing to me , the bastard begotten from the spear of war , the betrayer by cowardice and unmanliness , you , beloved Ajax , or by treachery , or that I wished to control your power and your house after your death . Such things a man quick to anger , violent in old age , will say , rushing into strife on account of nothing . I thrust out will be forced out of the end of our land , I having seemed a slave by words instead of a free man . These are the affairs according to the house , but in Troy there are many enemies to me , and few useful ones , and I gained all these from your death . Oh god , what will I do ? How will I drag you away from the sharp edge of this gleaming sword , oh wretched one , because of which a murderer it seems you breathed your last ? Do you see in time Hector even dead was about to kill you ? Behold , on account of the gods , the fortune to the two mortals . Hector having been bound from the chariot rails by the warrior’s belt which had been gifted to him was tortured always until he breathed out life . And this one having the gift of that man perished onto this by a fatal fall . Did the Furies forge this sword , and that one Hades , the fierce skilled craftsman ? I truly would say that the gods always contrive these things and also all things for mortals . But , to the one in knowing these things are not good , let that one delight in those things and I in these .

Chorus
Do not stretch longer , but think how you will bury that man in funeral rites , and quickly what you will say . For I see a hated man , and he might come laughing at the bad things , just like a hurtful man .
Teucer
Oh , I looked upon the most painful of all sights to my eyes , and truly the road which I just now trod while tracking and pursuing you was the most sorrowful of journeys for my heart as I discovered your fate . As if from some god a bitter prophecy about you sped through all the Achaeans that you dead were undone . Hearing this from far away certainly I moaned in grief then , and now having seen I am destroyed . Oh , god . Come , uncover the body so that I might see the bare wickedness . Oh body full of cruel daring impossible to look upon , what great distress you sowed with your death . Where can I go now ? To what people when I aided you in your labors in no way ? Telamon , your father and even mine , might kindly and fairly accept me with glad countenance even as I arrive without you . Why not ? As laughter is as accustomed to him no more pleasantly even when he is fortunate . What would he hide ? Will he not say something terrible , " the bastard begotten from the spear of war " or " the betrayer by cowardice and impotence " or " by trickery after your death beloved Ajax , that I wished to manage your power and your house . " The short tempered man , violent in his old age , will say such things being provoked into strife even on account of nothing . I will be cast out as an exile from our home appearing as a slave by his account instead of as freedman . Such is the state of affairs at home . And in Troy I have many enemies and few allies . All these things I gained from your death . Oh god , what will I do ? How will I lift your body , oh wretched one , from the sharp edge of this gleaming sword , the very murderer which caused you to breathe your last ? Can you see how Hector ( even though he is dead now ) was destined to kill you in time ? Behold the fortune of these two mortals given by the gods . First , Hector bound from the chariot rails by the very warrior’s belt which was gifted to him was carded along the ground continuously , until he breathed out his life . And Ajax having the battle-gift from Hector used this to destroy himself with his fatal fall . Did the Furies not forge this sword ? And Hades that cruelly skilled craftsman ? I say that the gods contrived these and all things for mortals . For the one who does not hold this as good in mind , let that one delight in his own things , and I in mine .

Chorus
Do not delay longer , but decide how you will bury this man with proper rights , decide quickly what you will say . For I see a hateful man who is likely coming laughing at our bad fate just like a malicious man would .

Κίρκη δ᾽ ὡς ἐνόησεν ἔμ᾽ ἥμενον οὐδ᾽ ἐπὶ σίτῳ
χεῖρας ἰάλλοντα , κρατερὸν δέ με πένθος ἔχοντα ,
ἄγχι παρισταμένη ἔπεα πτερόεντα προσηύδα :


τίφθ᾽ οὕτως , Ὀδυσεῦ , κατ᾽ ἄρ᾽ ἕζεαι ἶσος ἀναύδῳ ,
θυμὸν ἔδων , βρώμης δ᾽ οὐχ ἅπτεαι οὐδὲ ποτῆτος ;
τινά που δόλον ἄλλον ὀίεαι : οὐδέ τί σε χρὴ
δειδίμεν : ἤδη γάρ τοι ἀπώμοσα καρτερὸν ὅρκον .


ὣς ἔφατ᾽ , αὐτὰρ ἐγώ μιν ἀμειβόμενος προσέειπον :
‘ὦ Κίρκη , τίς γάρ κεν ἀνήρ , ὃς ἐναίσιμος εἴη ,
πρὶν τλαίη πάσσασθαι ἐδητύος ἠδὲ ποτῆτος ,
πρὶν λύσασθ᾽ ἑτάρους καὶ ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖσιν ἰδέσθαι ;
ἀλλ᾽ εἰ δὴ πρόφρασσα πιεῖν φαγέμεν τε κελεύεις ,
λῦσον , ἵν᾽ ὀφθαλμοῖσιν ἴδω ἐρίηρας ἑταίρους .
When Circe saw me sitting there , not stretching out my hands to the food , but weighed down with sorrow , she approached and spoke with winged words : " Odysseus , why do you sit as if you were dumb , eating your heart out , not touching the food or drink ? Are you suspicious of some new ruse ? Have no fear , I have sworn you a solemn oath already not to do you harm . "
To this I answered : " Circe , what decent man could bring himself to eat and drink before he had freed his men , and seen them face to face ? If you wish me in truth to eat and drink as you ask , then set them free and let me see my loyal friends with my own eyes .
Now when Circe noted that I sat thus , and did not put forth my hands to the food , but was burdened with sore grief , she came close to me , and spoke winged words : " ‘Why , Odysseus , dost thou sit thus like one that is dumb , eating thy heart , and dost not touch food or drink ? Dost thou haply forbode some other guile ? Nay , thou needest in no wise fear , for already have I sworn a mighty oath to do thee no harm . " So she spoke , but I answered her , and said : ‘Circe , what man that is right-minded could bring himself to taste of food or drink , ere yet he had won freedom for his comrades , and beheld them before his face ? But if thou of a ready heart dost bid me eat and drink , set them free , that mine eyes may behold my trusty comrades .

κήδε᾽ ἐπεί μοι πολλὰ δόσαν θεοὶ Οὐρανίωνες .
νῦν δ᾽ ὄνομα πρῶτον μυθήσομαι , ὄφρα καὶ ὑμεῖς
εἴδετ᾽ , ἐγὼ δ᾽ ἂν ἔπειτα φυγὼν ὕπο νηλεὲς ἦμαρ
ὑμῖν ξεῖνος ἔω καὶ ἀπόπροθι δώματα ναίων .
εἴμ᾽ Ὀδυσεὺς Λαερτιάδης , ὃς πᾶσι δόλοισιν
ἀνθρώποισι μέλω , καί μευ κλέος οὐρανὸν ἵκει .
Now , however , since you are inclined to ask the story of my sorrows , and rekindle my own sad memories in respect of them , I do not know how to begin , nor yet how to continue and conclude my tale , for the hand of heaven has been laid heavily upon me .
" Firstly , then , I will tell you my name that you too may know it , and that one day , if I outlive this time of sorrow , I may become a guest-friend to you , though I live so far away from all of you . I am Odysseus son of Laertes , renowned among humankind for all manner of subtlety , so that my kleos ascends to heaven
But your heart prompts you to ask of my sad troubles , and make me weep and groan the more . How shall I start and end my tale ? First let me give you my name , so you all know , and if I escape from pitiless fate later , I will play host to you , though I live far off . I am Odysseus , Laertes’ son , known to all for my stratagems , and my fame has reached the heavens .

Perseus
Alexander Pope
ὁσσάκι δ᾽ ὁρμήσειε πυλάων Δαρδανιάων
ἀντίον ἀΐξασθαι ἐϋδμήτους ὑπὸ πύργους ,
εἴ πως οἷ καθύπερθεν ἀλάλκοιεν βελέεσσι ,
τοσσάκι μιν προπάροιθεν ἀποστρέψασκε παραφθὰς
πρὸς πεδίον : αὐτὸς δὲ ποτὶ πτόλιος πέτετ᾽ αἰεί .
ὡς δ᾽ ἐν ὀνείρῳ οὐ δύναται φεύγοντα διώκειν :
Oft as he strove to rush straight for the Dardanian gates to gain the shelter of the well-built walls , if so be his fellows from above might succour him with missiles , so oft would Achilles be beforehand with him and turn him back toward the plain , but himself sped on by the city ' s walls . And as in a dream a man availeth not to pursue one that fleeth before him
Oft as to reach the Dardan gates he bends ,
And hopes the assistance of his pitying friends ,
( Whose showering arrows , as he coursed below ,
From the high turrets might oppress the foe , )
So oft Achilles turns him to the plain :
He eyes the city , but he eyes in vain .
As men in slumbers seem with speedy pace ,

ἧος ταῦθ᾽ ὥρμαινε κατὰ φρένα καὶ κατὰ θυμόν ,
ἕλκετο δ᾽ ἐκ κολεοῖο μέγα ξίφος , ἦλθε δ᾽ Ἀθήνη
οὐρανόθεν : πρὸ γὰρ ἧκε θεὰ λευκώλενος Ἥρη
ἄμφω ὁμῶς θυμῷ φιλέουσά τε κηδομένη τε :
στῆ δ᾽ ὄπιθεν , ξανθῆς δὲ κόμης ἕλε Πηλεΐωνα
οἴῳ φαινομένη : τῶν δ᾽ ἄλλων οὔ τις ὁρᾶτο :
θάμβησεν δ᾽ Ἀχιλεύς , μετὰ δ᾽ ἐτράπετ᾽ , αὐτίκα δ᾽ ἔγνω
Παλλάδ᾽ Ἀθηναίην : δεινὼ δέ οἱ ὄσσε φάανθεν :
While he pondered this in mind and heart , and was drawing from its sheath his great sword , Athene came from heaven . The white-armed goddess Hera had sent her forth , for in her heart she loved and cared for both men alike . She stood behind him , and seized the son of Peleus by his fair hair , appearing to him alone . No one of the others saw her . Achilles was seized with wonder , and turned around , and immediately recognized Pallas Athene . Terribly her eyes shone .
Now as he weighed in mind and spirit these two courses and was drawing from its scabbard the great sword , Athene descended from the sky . For Hera the goddess of the white arms sent her , who loved both men equally in her heart and cared for them . The goddess standing behind Peleus ' son caught him by the fair hair , appearing to him only , for no man of the others saw her . Achilleus in amazement turned about , and straightway knew Pallas Athene and the terrible eyes shining .

Hom. Il. 7. 233-236
τὸν δ᾽ αὖτε προσέειπε μέγας κορυθαίολος Ἕκτωρ :
‘Αἶαν διογενὲς Τελαμώνιε κοίρανε λαῶν
μή τί μευ ἠΰτε παιδὸς ἀφαυροῦ πειρήτιζε
ἠὲ γυναικός , οὐκ οἶδεν πολεμήϊα ἔργα .
And Hektor answered , " Noble Ajax , son of Telamon , leader of the host , treat me not as though I were some puny boy or woman that cannot fight .
To him then made answer great Hector of the flashing helm : " Aias , sprung from Zeus , thou son of Telamon , captain of the host , in no wise make thou trial of me as of some puny boy or a woman that knoweth not deeds of war .
