The Libation Bearers, 61-65 (Trans. Smyth: But the balance of Justice keeps watch: swiftly it descends on those in the light; sometimes pain waits for those who linger on the frontier of twilight; and others are claimed by strengthless night.).

ῥοπὴ δ᾽ ἐπισκοπεῖ δίκας
ταχεῖα τοὺς μὲν ἐν φάει,
τὰ δ᾽ ἐν μεταιχμίῳ σκότου
μένει χρονίζοντας ἄχη βρύει,
τοὺς δ᾽ ἄκραντος ἔχει νύξ.
