ἦλθον ἐγὼ παύσουσα τὸ σὸν μένος , αἴ κε πίθηαι ,
οὐρανόθεν : πρὸ δέ μ᾽ ἧκε θεὰ λευκώλενος Ἥρη
ἄμφω ὁμῶς θυμῷ φιλέουσά τε κηδομένη τε :
ἀλλ᾽ ἄγε λῆγ᾽ ἔριδος , μηδὲ ξίφος ἕλκεο χειρί :
ἀλλ᾽ ἤτοι ἔπεσιν μὲν ὀνείδισον ὡς ἔσεταί περ :
ὧδε γὰρ ἐξερέω , τὸ δὲ καὶ τετελεσμένον ἔσται :
καί ποτέ τοι τρὶς τόσσα παρέσσεται ἀγλαὰ δῶρα
ὕβριος εἵνεκα τῆσδε : σὺ δ᾽ ἴσχεο , πείθεο δ᾽ ἡμῖν .
" I come from heaven , if you will hear me , to bid you stay your anger .
Hera has sent me , who cares for both of you alike .
Cease , then , this brawling , and do not draw your sword ; rail at him if you will , and your railing will not be vain , for I tell you - and it shall surely be - that you shall hereafter receive gifts three times as splendid by reason of this present insult . Hold , therefore , and obey . "
" I have come from heaven to stay your anger , if you will obey , The goddess white-armed Hera sent me forth , for in her heart she loves and cares for both of you . But come , cease from strife , and do not grasp the sword with your hand . With words indeed taunt him , telling him how it shall be . For thus will I speak , and this thing shall truly be brought to pass . Hereafter three times as many glorious gifts shall be yours on account of this arrogance . But refrain , and obey us . "
