I no longer punish my slaves, although they are idle.

For now we give orders, but they do not obey.

νῦν γὰρ ἡμεῖς μὲν κελεύομεν, ἐκεῖνοι δ’ οὐ πείθονται.

But when we were young, then the old men always used to punish their slaves.

ἀλλ’ ὅτε νέοι ἦμεν ἡμεῖς, τότε οἱ γέροντες ἀεὶ ἐκόλαζον τοὺς οἰκέτας.

So they were not idle, nor did they treat their masters badly,

ἀργοὶ οὖν οὐκ ἦσαν ἐκεῖνοι, οὐδὲ τοὺς δεσπότας κακὰ ἐποίουν, ...

31

but were good and always obeyed.

... ἦσαν δὲ χρηστοὶ καὶ ἀεὶ ἐπείθονται.

32

For they were afraid of punishment.

ἐφοβοῦντο γὰρ τὴν κόλασιν.

But why don’t I save myself and my son from our debts?

Why don’t I look for some scheme,

διὰ τί οὐ ζητῶ γνώμην τινά, ...

... καὶ παύω τὰ χρέα ταῦτα;

36

Now, Strepsiades, save yourself!

(thinks furiously) νῦν οὖν, ὦ Στρεπψιαδή, σῷζε σεαυτόν.

Hurray, hurray! I have a plan!

(in triumph) ἰοὺ ἰού. γνώμην τινὰ ἔχω.
