So, surrender to sleep at last. What a misery keeping watch through the night, wide awake - you'll soon come up from under all your troubles.
Artemis - goddess, noble daughter of Zeus, if only you's whip an arrow through my breast and tear my life out, now, at once!
I still dream of my old master, unlucky man - if only he'd drop in from the blue and drive these suitors all in a rout throughout the halls!
I swear by Zeus, the first of all gods - by the table of hospitality waiting for us, by Odysseus' hearth where I have come for help, Odysseus will come home while you're still here.
My friends, we'll never carry off this plot to kill the prince. Let's concentrate on feasting.
Look here, I'll give him a proper guest-gift too, a prize he can hand the crone who bathes his feet or a tip for another slave who haunts the halls of our great king Odysseus!
Oh I can see it now - the disaster closing on you all! There's no escaping it, no way out - not for a single one of you suitors, wild reckless fools, plotting outrage here, the halls of Odysseus, great and strong as a god!
