The Whip and Will of Zeus

XXV Father Zeus, from many evils you would surely deliver all men, If you would show to all what sort of daemon they have. But be of good courage, since the race of mortals is divine; To them sacred nature displays and reveals each thing. If you have a share in this, you will master my commands, Find a cure, and save your soul from sufferings like these. (61-6)
